One Laptop Per Child Project is closing

The One Laptop Per Child Project (OLPC) is closing, according to OLPC News.

This was probably a good intentioned initiative. There are several factors about OLPC and its failure that I won't discuss here. But anybody who thinks that the best way to deliver help to a third-world country is to establish an exclusive distribution channel through its government is, at least, naive, even if he is a genius in other matters.
