OLPC: the technology scam of the century?

Waleed al-Shobakky, with whom I maintain a lively correspondence, pointed this blog out to me. Waleed is Egyptian and we have long discussed the One Laptop per Child initiative and other efforts to bring computing to less developed regions of the world.

One need not agree with this blog's conclusions against the OLpC project and it's goals to see that there are a LOT more potential problems than those who have not delved deeply into the project have been told. While this does not change my support for the OLpC project, it does dampen my optimism, significantly.
