The Dream of One Laptop per Child

Here's a fascinating article on Nicholas Negroponte's struggles to get a computer in the hands of every child around the world.

The goals are similar to but on a much larger scale than my BC Digital Divide Foundation. Though later this year I'm launching a new business venture, where at least 50% of the profits will go towards similar philanthropic initiatives. BCDD has been incredibly successfully, especially considering our small, all volunteer staff. But there's much more to be done, especially in the arena of education.
