I'm not sure how this is going to go, but Tom and I just ordered 2 XO's for the girls through One Laptop Per Child (OLPC). We decided to buy 2 and donate 2. I like the idea, and OLPC is running a "give one, get one" special through December 31st. You get a tax credit on the laptops you donate. Additionally, T-Mobile is giving everyone who participates a year of free wireless hot spot service.
I promise to blog about them once they arrive.
Best case scenario is the girls really enjoy the system, learn from them, and we actually assist in getting computers into the third world classrooms.
Worst case scenario is the girls don't use them, but we know we tried to to something good.
Seems like a Win/Win?
