Negroponte's Humanitarian Idea--One Laptop Per Child

What do you think about the humanitarian's idea: Sell laptops in the U.S. for children for only $200, but you must also buy this laptop for a child in a third-world country? One can buy this laptop only on the Internet and only during this month of December, at least for now. This was on 60 minutes earlier this year and is coming on again tonight.

Nicholas Negroponte, MIT professor, had the idea to get every child in developing countries a free laptop, not any ordinary laptop but one with better features than a U.S. laptop costing thousands of dollars. Over one billion poor children around the world can potentially get one. If the laptop is stolen from the child, it will stop working in 24 hours!

He said it takes a 10-year old child in a poor, third-world country only 3 minutes to "get it" and learn how use a laptop, even kids who are not going to school. It appears to be making children eager and excited about going to school.

It's also making companies like Intel jump and try to profit from this. This idea can also help catapult humanity's consciousness during this crucial time in history of great transformation. What do you think about this idea?
