This is interesting because the MIT lapstops were the subject of discussion here in Bogita. India's objections to the "hardsell" are interesting: "'India must not allow itself to be used for experimentation with children in this area,' the ministry has said." It's hard not to wonder about MIT's marketing strategy. Why would it be necessary to buy a million laptops? Why can't they buy one, and see whether it works? Thanks to Norm for the link.
