Maybe OLPC would do rather better if they opened up this program to the rest of the 'civilised' world. After all, we can't just rely on generous Americans to solve all the worlds problems - can we ?? Maybe the rest of us in the West would like to participate, after all I was allowed to register my interest for the program even though I have a .uk email address. I can see them appearing all over ebay shortly as 'generous' Americans attempt to cash in.
