One Laptop Per Child - The Dream is Over | UN Dispatch
"The laptop never came down to the hundred dollar price that was promised. The huge orders never materialized, and the project was very slow to allow sales to NGOs and charities instead of just governments. They abandoned the human-powered power source.

Response from Negroponte: http://www.olpcnews.com/commentary/press/negropontes_response_to_un_dis.html AND Jon Camfield: http://www.olpcnews.com/commentary/press/in_defense_of_olpc_xo_laptop.html AND See also the comments like this one: "for most people, who have been spoon-fed their knowledge all their lives, they are not capable of making the leap and learning on their own"
