OLPC revisited

Just saw a link to a BBC article that deals with the dear old OLPC initiative. Interesting to see how the people involved seem to lash out against “naysayers” and “politicians who don’t think big”. Let’s quote one of those:

Dr Igwe Aja-Nwachuku said: “What is the sense of introducing One Laptop per Child when they don’t have seats to sit down and learn; when they don’t have uniforms to go to school in, where they don’t have facilities?”

“We are more interested in laying a very solid foundation for quality education which will be efficient, effective, accessible and affordable.”

Well, I don’t know the guy’s agenda in this case, but that statement sound very sensible to me. I also wonder why they call it “charity” when you sell somthing for prices that cover your cost…
