OLPC Cuts Staff
I”ve been thinking about the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) lately because so many of my friends are buying netbooks. I think history will show that the OLPC project helped stimulate the netbook market.
It’s ironic to me that frivolity (JibJab) is getting $7.5 million in investment and OLPC is getting the shaft, so to speak. On Tuesday, OLPC announced a 50% staff-contractor cut both on the blog and on the wiki.
