One Laptop pr Child

I caught a story aired on 60-Minutes last weekend regarding a non-profit project called “One Laptop Per Child”. The projects goal is as simple as the organizations name. They put together a team of engineers who developed a tough and inexpensive laptop. The founder of the project is MIT professor Nicholas Negroponte.

There are several things that has grabbed my attention with this story during the last year. First, Negroponte mentioned that some of the children who have been given one of these laptops have never seen any form of electricity before.
