Someone describing what they like about OPLC says happily
"They'll have access to every library in the world!".
And then, after a pause, with even greater joy, says
"They'll have access to my thesis!!!".

"OLPC will stay a dream for those who do not believe that education can change the future" -Timothy Paul Martinez

"B2-1 presses memory, but it can press me to make education better." - Rowen http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Philippines


From a talk abstract: In 1969 Herbert Simon put forward the idea that: “in an information rich world, the scarce resource is [human] attention.” Today this would seem to be increasingly true.
Response on #olpc-content:
_sj_: attention?
_sj_: I don't think so.
_sj_: until we reach grade D utilitarian utopia, the scarcest resource is condensation points for collaboration
_sj_: information is alive, it is not gray dust that falls everywhere equally
