Was at my buddy Amir’s place last night and he had Tivo’ed a 60 Minutes segment for me about Nicholas Negroponte’s One Laptop Per Child initiative. Watch it and prepare to get chills.
The possibilities here are endless. This will change the world. I’ve written about this before in our first blog post on Edurev as well as in some posts inspired by the book The End of Poverty over on LearnOutLoud.
My eyes got misty last night thinking about what this all means. A real possibility to lift millions of people out of poverty and allow them to learn the things that will allow them to become self-sufficient and break the cycle of economic hardship. This can happen within our lifetime. I can’t think of a better legacy to leave to future generations. Time to get back to work.
