The One Laptop Per Child project has received a lot of media attention, including a lot of criticism, especially since announcing that the next version of the tiny educational laptop would run Windows XP.

Regardless of its flaws, the MIT-initiated project has inspired many companies, including Intel and Asus to produce their own low-powered machines for developing regions.  The design and production of these brings together technologists, designers, educators, economists… cool!

The current OLPC system is mostly written in Python.  Once you’ve attended some of our Tuesday sessions, why not start contributing?!
