Submission + - OLPC Project to air-drop laptops->

sl4shd0rk writes: Nicholas Negroponte and the OLPC project are still going and have a new plan in the works. A laptop air-drop to help facilitate "self-education" in areas with large poor populations. “In the first year we’ll go in and meet with tribal elders and aid organizations, people not involved with education, but then we let the kids learn,” Negroponte said. All of this work by Negroponte and others was essential, he explained, because market forces were leaving the poor of the world behind. Meanwhile, the largest countries had adopted strategies that offer little for the developing world.
