The truth about my life

Wed, 28 Mar 2007

One of the most interesting comments I've ever seen about One Laptop per Child project is on Jani Monoses's blog, directly quoting him:

So at least the idea that kids and professors having their own laptops is no longer disputed, but rather who should produce them, OLPC or the existing IT oligarchy of Intel and Microsoft partners. Still, both sides miss the point that the strength of the XO is its openness and the collaborative educational software on it that can make the users more creative, inquisitive and communicative. Apparently what the politicians care about is forming a new generation of office workers or IT specialists, not necessarily better educated individuals on the whole.

So sad but true.
