60 Minutes reports on One Laptop Per Child Project

OLPC May 22nd, 2007

I am interested in what people think about not only this report but the whole project. I have come to question not the founding princable that started this project, but rather where it will really endup. For instance will it become commercial. I think if I could sell millions of an item I produce, say chips, I could do that at or near cost just to increase my market share.

For every good result you can list, can you also see a negative result. Will the final good out weigh the bad?
