IPTC INFO
CaptionIn November 2005 Nicholas Negroponte founder of the One Laptop Per Child [OLPC] nonprofit association took the stage to evangelize his One Laptop per Child non-profit which uses an AMD 500 MHz processor at the World Summit on Information Society in Tunis Tunisia. The current prototype ---beginning mass production in 2007 will use a different the power generator likely in the form of a foot pedal rather than a hand crank connected to the AC-wall adapter rather than the computer. Negroponte had previously said the flexible devices will have a 7-inch 18-centimeter screen that can be read in sunlight. It will save on costs by using the Linux operating system peer-to-peer wireless connectivity and a 500-megahertz processor -- which was top of the line in the late 1990s. . Governments or donors will buy the laptops for children to own and use in and out of school and the United Nations will help distribute the machines. “Education is a common denominator to making the world a better place ” he said ''The hundred-dollar laptop is an education project it's not a laptop project.'' Of the estimated one billion children in the world 50 percent live in remote areas. “If a child is lucky they go to school for two-and-a-half hours per day ” _______________________ Uploaded on November 17 2005 by dweekly to http://www.flickr.com/photos/dweekly/64221348/in/set-1353356/ http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/
