Give a kid a laptop this holiday

Friends Mark Goldberg, Jon Arnold, and Mark Evans have all written about the One Laptop Per Child initiative, and their current promotion.  Basically, if you spend $399 on an OLPC for a child before the end of day November 26, they will ship you a laptop, a $200 tax receipt, AND they will send another to a child in a developing country.  It's a good cause.  If you can afford the $399, please consider doing it

    It's a cool initiative, and seems to be very well researched in terms of practical considerations as well. And the XO is pretty nifty piece of kit that I could see my own godson using a bunch.

    In case you Googled based on Alec's title (and were brought back to his blog!), the site you need to go to is:
    http://laptop.org/

    and then the short-track to donating is in smallish text near the top, "give a laptop".

    Thanks for the link, Greg. I've edited the post to include it.
