This is an amazing program that I have been meaning to post on my blog for a couple of weeks now. Essentially, Nicholas Negroponte from MIT devoted himself to developing a laptop that was tough enough and affordable enough to essentially give away so that children in developing countries could have one. He did it, and now everyone else can help too. When you buy one, the organization will give one to a child in a developing country. Anyone looking for meaningful holiday gifts??
And who else can tell you about it as well as Mr. Negroponte himself?

Libraries should be involved in this program!! Talk about increasing access…
