Sorry to the world’s poorest – we just couldn’t quite agree

4 01 2008

Very disappointing news that Intel has withdrawn its funding and technical contribution from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, citing “philosophical differences”. I know the project is not perfect but the intention and vision must be applauded. Nothing on the OLPC or Intel websites about this news.

Maybe this is just a temporary glitch rather than a permanent roadblock for what is a serious effort to improve the education and prospects for some of the world’s poorest children.
