Intel Drops OLPC Project

Posted by Yaser on January 4, 2008

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC)

Very disappointing news that Intel has withdrawn its funding and technical contribution from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, citing “philosophical differences”. I know the project is not perfect but the intention and vision must be applauded. Nothing on the OLPC or Intel websites about this news.

Maybe this is just a temporary glitch rather than a permanent roadblock for what is a serious effort to improve the education and prospects for some of the world’s poorest children.
