I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Sign me up! With two provisions:

1. Only if we get to the point where Mr. Negroponte decides he thinks it's a good idea. He's in the thick of this, and we should respect that he knows more about what's going on with this project and its acceptance in various places than we do. If he's not in favor ultimately, my pledge is to donate the cost of two laptops directly to the OLPC initiative (initially I think that's going to be $270, as they're starting out at about $135 apiece with the goal of hitting $100 by 2008).

2. I'll only take delivery of mine when production is really rolling; otherwise, I'm delaying one getting to a child somewhere, and that's really not what this is about.
