Journal Journal: Coming soon: $100 Hand-crank powered Linux Laptop?

Technocrat.NET mentions an IDG News report that in November, Nicholas Negroponte's Media Lab at MIT will unveil a $100 laptop prototype, targeted largely at developing countries. Various specs: 500Mhz CPU, stripped down Linux OS, screen highly visible in sunlight. This seems similar to the Freeplay Foundation hand-crank shortwave radios, hopefully they will have a similar "Buy 1 Give 1" program. Sign me up!
