> 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.
