Guido van Rossum on Style Guides and Python's PEP 8
Guido explains that people get overly religious about style guides. That sometimes you have to change the guide. That you don't want to put too much detail into it. Altogether, a very healthy attitude. I should consider it carefully in any style guides I create in the future.

The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project has been accused of cultural imperialism: being the modern version of missionaries.

OLPC attempts to make it possible for people to choose.
