This is a bit odd, but here's what Andy Carvin is reporting: "Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales announced that the One Laptop Per Child Project is including Wikipedia as one of the first elements in their content repository. (ac: though they've been talking about this for at least a year.) He also announced a new project called Wikiversity. It will serve as an online center for the creation and use of free learning materials and activities." Wikipedia has also been around for a while; here is my coverage dating from the beginning of last year. Mark Oehlert comments (a bit mysteriously), "Oh snap! Jimmy Wales did NOT just step into this when BB patented the delivery of anything that can teach anyone anything over the Web!"
