One Laptop Per Child's "Give One Get One" is back

At the MIT event, Prof Negroponte announced the resumption of the Get-One-Give-One programme to allow people in wealthy nations to buy two XO laptops and donate one to a child in a developing country.

The programme will be open to people in North America and Europe and start in August or September.

Prof Negroponte said the previous programme enabled OLPC to distribute 30,000 additional laptops to children in Rwanda, Mongolia and Haiti.

If you remember. And now that OLPC XO devices run Windows XP, we just might get Bill Gates to drop $25M on the children of New York City.
