It’s official. The UN has given its full support to the $100 laptop program. So hopefully we will see the green hand cranked laptops produced some time this year and distributed to countries with children in need. Negroponte, who heads the project, hopes government or donors will purchase the laptops and then give full ownership to the children. To whether or not the laptops could be produced at $100 has been a point of slight controversy.
