One laptop per child

What if we create a relationship with One Laptop per child? When the location is up and running I would like to have the flexibility to offer laptop borrowing to any child who shows an interest in writing but does not have a computer. They are $200. US each. (Of course a plentiful supply of paper and pencils will be in the cupboard too.)

I also like Lenore Richards at Ontario College of Art and Design may be able to help us get to Bob Young to ask for support.(thanks Michael) The idea of publishing on demand makes a lot of sense. At least in the short-term.

Any thoughts?

Acer, Dell and others are making low-cost ultraportables. One of them could be convinced to be a partner.

We could also pick up used iMacs for around $200.
