One Laptop per Child

I thought it is time to have a look where the One Laptop per Child project stands. For those who don't know: The idea has a history dating back 40 years, when Logo, the first programming language written especially for children was created. In January 2003, Nicholas Negroponte, one of the world's leading computer scientists at MIT, launched the idea to supply a $100 laptop to poor children of the world in order to advance education and to increase economic opportunities of developing countries.
