United States
I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help


You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

As a technologist and social activist, I believe strongly in The One Laptop Per Child project on many levels, but worry that for it to really work the in the field, open source software and educational content really need to be taken to the next level, which means the that the best and the brightest developers need to have these laptops to play with. Also, as much as I want to help with children of the developing world, I also want to help the US inner-city youth (for example in my home of New York City) who would equally benefit and for whom providing the WiFi infrastructure could be much easier. Perhaps THIS buy-1-give-2 initiative can address BOTH issues at once. I would certainly be interested in helping make it happen any way I can.
