  12. 12. One Laptop Per Child was formed about a year and a half ago. It's a nonprofit association. It raised about 20 million dollars to do the engineering to just get this built
  13. 13. we all in this room learned how to walk, how to talk, not by being taught how to talk, or taught how to walk, but by interacting with the world
  14. 14. Whereas at about the age six, we were told to stop learning that way, and that all learning from then on would happen through teaching
  15. 15. Now once people start looking at this, they say, "Ah, this is a laptop project." Well, no, it's not a laptop project. It's an education project.
  16. 16. Are we dreaming? Is this real? It actually is real. The only criticism, and people really don't want to criticize this, because it is a humanitarian effort, a nonprofit effort and to criticize it is a little bit stupid, actually.

  27. 27. “Even though this wasn't the direction we went because the crank - - it really is stupid to have it on board, by the way. In spite of what some people in the press don't get it, didn't understand it, we didn't take it off because we didn't want to do -- having it on the laptop itself is really not what you want. You want a separate thing, like the AC adaptor. I didn't bring one with me, but they really work much better off-board.”

  44. 44. Members of the OLPC team, working with product design firm Squid Labs, in Alameda, Calif., found that a small child, using her arms to power a hand crank, could produce only 5 to 10 watts for a few minutes before her arms got tired. It would take about 10 minutes of cranking out 5 W to power the machine for 20 minutes in its color graphics mode. The OLPC designers considered solar cells but rejected them as too expensive. They then turned to Squid Labs, which came up with an ingenious solution: a microgenerator powered by a pull string, similar to the assembly used to start a lawn mower.

  46. 46. when we deliver laptops to kids in the remotest and poorest parts of the world, they're connected. There's not just laptops. And so, we have to drop in satellite dishes. We put in generators. It's a lot of stuff that goes behind these.
  47. 47. So I'm standing here telling you that sometime next year, we're going to make 20 percent of the world production. And if we do that, there are going to be a lot of lucky kids out there

  51. 51. I believe feature-wise, and its purpose is bang on. However I tend to question the aesthetic. What I question is does it match the device's purpose?... Having been to areas where this is intended to be used the aesthetic doesn't match. For a lack of better word, it is over- stylized. Will something that looks "cool" become a beacon for theft? Functionally, there are 4 hinges (if you count each antenna "ear" as each having a hinge). Africa in particular is innundated with pervasive red dirt. The stuff gets EVERYWHERE. Tweet: jonwinebrenner you're absolutely correct, it appears to have no connection to its stated purpose. I think most of these designed items for the 3rd world, "bringing technology to the worlds kids", are design and media exercises for their creators. by pier » April 11th, 2007
  52. 52. it's designerly aesthetic seems remarkably similar to this: except not as cool... i just want to see how the power crank works... by yo » April 10th, 2007 Unless there is an armed guard these things are a beacon for theft. Tweet: jonwinebrenner I keep thinking of the Apple eMate circa 1997 by cg » April 11th, 2007 If this thing is durable, but looks like a toy, is that a good design decision? Tweet: jonwinebrenner
  53. 53. So my concern is more the design of the product. This thing is slick and very modern looking. It LOOKS better and more expensive than $130. Even if these devices get into children’s hands, is having them look the way they do going to attract more attention? I suppose 1M units going to Nigeria could effectively flood the market and make this point moot. But I still question the aesthetic of a product that looks like it should be sitting on my desk next to my iPod in the environment that it is going to. you're absolutely correct, it appears to have no connection to its stated purpose.

  56. 56. “OLPC… broke the most important design rule from the very beginning of the project. Design from the bottom up, not top down. This was, almost in every way, a traditional top down product development”

  62. 62. “Yet, after a decade and a half, and at a cost of about $12 million annually (around 1 percent of the state's education budget), Maine has yet to see any measurable increases on statewide standardized test scores. That's part of why Maine's current governor, Paul LePage, has called the program a "massive failure".”

  69. 69. Standard crutches hurt! Crutches are hard to walk in. Navigating stairs on crutches is dangerous. Underarms get bruised and rubbed raw. Crutches make your arms and shoulders fatigue. But most of all, crutches fall short because you can’t use your hands or your arms.
