I had been hoping to start a grass roots campaign to help finance the One Laptop Per Child program, but after doing some investigation it looks like this will have to be put on hold for a while. A $100 computer sounds like a cheap deal however nobody thought of the infrastructure costs involved in setting up such a program. There's the wireless connections sattelite dishes and operational costs that nobody mentioned. That would be something that only a government or large corporation could finance. I still think it's a great educational idea. We'll see what happens.
