Last night on TV I saw am advertising spot for the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) initiative that featured Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura from NBC’s Heroes) and then I went and checked online and it looks like the offer is extended through December 31, 2007. If you’d still like to try out the Give One, […]

Awesome One-Laptop-Per-Child Charity Option

I’m probably late to the party, but there is an awesome charity opportunity for anyone supportive of the OLPC One-Laptop-Per-Child initiative.

As a bonus, despite the proximity to his residence, I […]
