Re: [K12OSN] AMD offers $250, 000 prize to help Third World get online



Umm...shouldn't that award go to Jim McQuillan?  That's exactly what he's done!  It's called LTSP!

Perhaps he and Eric Harrison should share it, due to Eric's turnkey packaging of it.

AMD offers $250,000 prize to help Third World get online

AMD plans to award a $250,000 prize to whoever can design a computer
lab that can be adapted and implemented in third-world countries. The
company, along with Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair,
introduced the new Open Architecture Prize last week at TED 2007 in
Monterey, California. The prize, which AMD is lauding as the largest
prize in the field of architecture, will be handed out annually and
will be part of a multi-year program.
