Why I Love OLPC/

I have an absolute passion for communications and truly believe that these tools can have a miraculously positive impact on Quality of Life and Standard of Living -- if we brilliant humans can only figure out how to use the tools correctly.

And I truly believe that OLPC has figured out how to use the tools correctly.

And I welcome the opportunity to help in any way that I can.

[Will refrain for the moment from sharing how much I feel that MIT's Media Lab is absolutely sacred ground in terms of Human Factors and Usability and the Media Lab's tremendous contributions toward advancement in mindshare on the raw power of the computer for creating community -- but would welcome [conversation]mailto:cm(at) with any/all who gush the same way (smile)]
