$100 computer for the poor

MIT's Nicholas Negroponte revealed the details of a $100 computer for poor countries.

This is what they need?

A $100 computer using an OS and application software that is non-standard in the working world?

Not food!

Not water!

Not healthcare!

Not better agricultural assistance!

Not debt relief!

Not even a moratorium on arms being shipped to warring factions!

No, not that. Thay need a computer to satisfy the 'vision' of an ivory tower resident who has never walked in their shoes.


Thank you for the doorstop!
