This OLPC presentation cosinsides with a term paper that challenges us, individually, to create a basic database outline and simple network for a project that piques our interest. My project highlights satellite networking, cloud computing and wireless laptops for digital education in remote provinces and villages around the world. A basic powerpoint .pdf file is attached, showcasing the bare bones of my paper.
