I've been reading and hearing about the $100 laptop for a while, but I haven't been following the development of the project closely. John Nelson from DSU updated me at lunch today, and I just visited the website. John was talking about participating in the buy-one, get-one program so that he and others at DSU might be familiar with the laptop, enabling them to eventually spend some time teaching with the laptop in a developing country. Great idea.
As I was clicking through the site, I thought about the refugee population in Fargo, and wondered if I should and if I could get others to participate in the 1+1 program as a way to get laptops into the hands of children in Fargo who might not otherwise have easy access to computers at home.
