OLPC Give One, Get One

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

The OLPC [One Laptop Per Child] Foundation is starting their annual Give One Get One campaign on November 17th! Last year I donated a laptop and got mine in the mail a few months later. It’s not the fastest computer, but it’s cute and rugged and novel [did I mention hackable?]. One laptop only costs $199, and I’m sure a lot of you out there are self-employed, which means you can benefit from the write off. You get a tax break and a kid gets a computer. Sweet deal.
