    "This story is incredible, and admittedly, unfinished. There's much more we need to learn that hasn't been told yet, but what we do know c(sh)ould change things. Maybe even a whole lot of things.
    Recently, the OLPC organization took boxes of tablets, carefully and tightly taped up, and dropped them in two remote villages of Ethiopia. There were no instructions. No teachers. Nothing but a group of first grade-aged students for whom the tablets were intended. Students who couldn't read, couldn't identify the single form of a letter, had never before seen any kind of technology."

    "OLPC is cool for a number of reasons. First, it's real innovation, the project was born before anyone was actively occupied with the themes OLPC works with. Second, it recognises that education is key to create equality around the world. And third, OLPC started out with a dream, a vision so strong that it inspired and motivated others to change their way of thinking too."
