‘One Laptop per Child’ in the Observer
by Alec Patton
There’s a very interesting piece in last Sunday’s Observer about the One Laptop Per Child project, specifically about how it works in Rwanda. Here’s the article.
Speaking personally, I wish I spent less of my time in front of a screen, so ‘one laptop per child’ sounds about equal parts utopian and dystopic to me. But that’s me writing as someone with access to a computer pretty much whenever I want, so I’m a long way from the target audience. And would love to have a small, solar-powered, ultra-rugged XO laptop – they are seriously cool.
