Talk:What every government should ask itself when considering an ebook deployment


Jump to: navigation, search


I've been making these pages because I - or my network - often comes to talk to high ranked people that have hardly any good birdview of what they're getting their nation into when announcing "nation wide" deployment of laptops and getting everybody to the internet. The aim of this document to share our work and provide a basis to start from for making a printed version that allows you to explain with help of a paper support what the OLPC educational initiative is all about, answer some of the FAQ/Remarks/Misassumptions and pictures as they speak a 1000 words. Copy paste it in a page lay-out software and edit the size of the pics etc. as the possibilities offered by this software are rather limited or cumbersume. --SvenAERTS 14:54, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

In your accompanying pictures balance white and non-white kids !!!

I've come to realize that people think this is a poor kids computer with of course lesser performance that's acceptable in retard/poor regions, and hence the whole OLPC initiative is nothing for smart, developed, normal rich regions, parents and their most holy of holy - their first world kids. Of course this is not true. You want the XO-XServer combination for your 1st world kids too. You don't want a 750 € ipad in the hands of your kids or youngsters. You want the XO-XS ! And the only reason why people from the not developing world think like that is because they only see pictures of OLPC and black or yellow poor African, Asian or Latin American kids running around with XO laptops being all happy. So that's why I've been careful having also lots of pics of "white" faced kids.--SvenAERTS 09:46, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
