A Laptop for $ 100?

Yes says Nicholas Negroponte — co-founder of the renowned MIT Media Lab — in this article. Known as OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, it is supported by international big wigs like Google, and, will run on human power — whatever that means.

The chief of MIT Lab is not new to India - he had earlier collaborated with the Indian government to set up the Media Lab Asia, a research lab liberally funded by the government. The project has been attacked by another high profile oracle of the software industry, our own Bill-va. Seems Bill Gates, with his vision of future possibilities is critical of the project.

Am traveling. So this blog will take a much deserved break. But I will be back with interesting articles and features. So as they all say, watch this maze.
