This is getting *very* interesting. :)
Question. Has anyone seen a video by Prof. Nicholas P. Negroponte who
is leading a OLPC   (One Laptop Per Child) Project? If you haven't,
here is your chance:
http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/313/
In the video, he explains how this program works to bring down the
initial cost of $100 to $90, $80, $50, $25 and eventually $0.
Do you see my point? Do you see how this new project might be end up? :)
