> One laptop per child. That's the dream envisioned by MIT professor
> Nicholas Negroponte <http://laptop.org/en/vision/mission/index.shtml>,
> the creator of the One Laptop per Child foundation
> <http://www.flickr.com/photos/olpc>, and the XO laptop
> <http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XO>. The dream is also shared by Stephen
> Jacobs, instructor of the One Laptop per Child Class (OLPC) at RIT.
> "The whole idea of this class is to give students who want to give
> back to developing nations a chance to do so," says Jacobs. The class
> (course 4080-590) is now in its second year and is a place where any
> major at RIT can contribute. Offering an un-paid co-op possibility,
> the OLPC class allows students to work on the open source software
> that the computers run on, as well as create content for children's
> educational tools.
