How wonderful! I have observed with interest from afar, the OLPC project, brainchild of Nicholas Negroponte and MIT - and now the first test projects are underway. This picture is of a pupil using his new XO laptop, one of the test machines. What is the One Laptop per Child project?

“It's an education project, not a laptop project.” — Nicholas Negroponte

Our goal: To provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment and express themselves. OLPC FAQ
