Dissecting OLPC Politics.

This is an excellent article on some of the (somewhat obvious) political issues surrounding the OLPC — some of which I have alluded to in previous articles on this site. At the same time, it gives an insight on the many of the policy and technology mistakes the OLPC project seems to have made over the past few years; from academic short-sightedness (call it arrogance if you will) to the abuse of free software ideology as a vehicle aiming to convince of the device’s value. Absolutely worth a read.
