Give One, Get One

XO Laptop, from OLPC The Give 1 Get 1 promotion ends today.

You should go for it!

  1. Because OLPC the Real Deal.
  2. Because it'll help someone you'll never meet.
  3. Because it will change the way you think.
  4. Because, trust me.
  5. Because the XO is entirely Open Source.
  6. Because the support is incredible.
  7. Because it's instant 1337.
  8. Because it will teach you things.
  9. Because Nicholas is right.
  10. Because Seymour is right.

But mostly, because you're going to want mine - and by then it'll be too late!

I have to admit, when I first heard about it, I was skeptical. However, it does appear to be a brilliant and beautiful piece of engineering. I regret not getting one, as you predicted. I'm still slightly skeptical that what third world kids need is a laptop, but I think part of that was that I assumed the laptop would be similar to those American kids use to remain incredibly stupid. This OLPC seems like it's well designed for learning, and badly designed for wasting time. I like that. Perhaps the XO laptop should be the only computer we allow American kids to have. You want facebook, Danny? Write it in Python yourself or go outside.
