The damning of the OLPC: Sic Transit Gloria Laptopi

by jesse in ,


Ivan Krstić just posted an entry named "Sic Transit Gloria Laptopi". Without commenting on the problems of the OLPC project, which - for some time - has seemed to be rapidly pushing itself into oblivion - I completely agree on Ivan's points on open source and frankly, everything else he says.

It's saddening that the project which thrilled me - due to the ideas outline by Ivan - now disgusts me and so many others.
