MIT Media Lab 100 dollars laptop

After our first meeting, I post a few pictures and link to the web page of the 100$ laptop as a project to discuss on Wednesday.
"Laptops are both a window and a tool: a window into the world and a tool with which to think. They are a wonderful way for all children to "learn learning" through independent interaction and exploration."

Also I wanted to add that in this project the power of product design is pretty clear: It makes it very ready and on the market while it is still on the conception phase even though Nicolas Negroponte mentioned during the Media Lab alumni event it would be full featured for their next conference. It makes it a concrete and doable project for companies to sponsor the research proposed.
