Comment Wayan doesn't carry a intel blue badge (Score 3, Informative) 193

All Intel employees have to carry a blue badge. It's the only way to get into Intel buildings. I know: I used to work there.

I also took money from Intel in 2004: they paid my salary for the entire year. Then, when my division was closed, I joined with Nicholas Negroponte to start OLPC. Calling Wayan an Intel employee is like calling me one.

OLPCnews is a great forum for commentary on the OLPC project, they are sometimes critical of OLPC, and like all of us sometimes get things wrong, but they are mostly amazed by and very supportive of OLPC. OLPCnews is certainly helping build the OLPC community that has expanded as a result of OLPC's "Give One, Get One" program.

I think Wayan is doing a terrific job.

(former Chief Technology Officer of OLPC)
