    Technology will revolutionize free access to information. With 7 billion people in the world, the power to collaborate only increases exponentially. This is good. This is very very good.
    Let's give a damn about giving people tools for betterment.

    this is awesome. 2 things: 1) I heard nick negroponte talk about moving OLPC to the tablet space for this same reason, and 2) I also heard Eric Hirschberg, Activision CEO and overall cool dude, pitch and win creating an X Prize around programming such a tablet so that it's use would be unlocked by kids progressing along an educational curve. I think it would be sweet to check in with Eric and the X Prize folks to see if this project is off the ground. Anyhow, hell yea.

      Yeah, this is great. Thanks for the tips Ben. It would be amazing to see a tablet like this implemented for education, I'll check in with these guys to see what the status is.
