The Engadget Show 44 has featured OLPC among its other targets on education. Others include Google, LeapFrog, Adafruit, Sparkfun and more. First, I applaud Engadget for including OLPC in the mix. More importantly, the show includes OLPC's work in the US, especially in North Carolina through a series of projects run by the Knight Foundation. Bringing technologies into schools in the US are a specific challenge. The North Carolina schools are a particularly interesting deployment.
PS: Spot our "My other laptop is in Rwanda" sticker at the 0:14:30 mark. Very cool! The original idea for this sticker came from http://eclecti.cc/olpc/my-other-laptop way back.
