“Standing still is a reliable recipe for going backward.”

 

Disruptive Innovation OLPC’s goal is to provide children (even in the most remote areas) with an XO laptop, a children’s machine for “learning learning.”  The XO will allow children to “tap into their own potential, to be exposed to a whole world of ideas, and to contribute to a more productive and saner world community.”

Potential to Serve:  Young children around the world.
