Knowledge, Learning, Community
Walter Bender has resigned from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), a move that may represent the final collapse of the initiative into, well, something else. It was Bender's voice participants read when the newsletters came out, and Bender, perhaps even more than Negroponte, who personified the initiative. "My personal interest is in helping build a community of developers, educators, and learners dedicated to advancing the quality of free and open source software for learning and the sharing of pedagogical approaches in this community," he writes, which may lead one to infer that OLPC is no longer doing that.
