Laptops for $100 on the Horizon
Independent online reporting:
"One man in Boston has a plan that he hopes will bridge the world's gaping digital divide - and quickly. The visionary is Nicholas Negroponte, director of the Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his idea consists of a new kind of laptop computer that will cost just $100 (£57) to buy."
This is thrilling news to me! As a homeschooler, it would be great to have this resource available for my children. Also as more and more schools encourage computer use and colleges require computer use, I can see this being a boon to society. Can't wait to see where this leads.
