Following XO Laptop News

I am very interested in learning how the XO is being used worldwide by children and teachers, and here at home in the USA. Here is a site promising to keep us informed, the One Laptop Per Child News. It’s very new but the posts appear to be informative and even fascinating. Read the post about ‘cow power’ in India. Very clever. Now if we could only connect all spin class bicycles to a similar device then perhaps we could produce our own green energy by the sweat of our brow. It never ceases to amaze me how much energy we Americans expend on exercise solely for personal improvement. If all of the New Years resolutions included producing green energy while working out it might motivate more people to continue throughout the year. Now that I’m way off topic, what if the cost of belonging to a gym was mitigated by the amount of energy you produced to reduce the electric bill? Just a thought.
