Nicholas Negroponte is promoting an effort to bring computers to all children of the world. One laptop per child is his goal, and to do so he is cooperating with several companies to both get the computers as cheap and easy to use as possible, and to slim down the programs so that the software will not be as demanding as it is today. The goal is to produce this laptop for less than 100$.
Only catch: you can't buy less than one million of these machines at the time.
Still, if I had a 100 million $ hanging around asking to be used, I might just have bought and donated them to schools even the presumed wealthy paradise of Norway. This is a wonderful, fantastic idea, and should be available to ALL children.
