What kids think of the OLPC

People at the OLPC recently gave the new $175 machines to kids and reported,

Note that Gabe had never seen one of these things before, and with practically no help from the adults, he had started painting, typing, and playing with the webcam, cackling quite evilly the whole time.

Nicholas Negroponte hopes that 95% of technical support for the OLPC will be carried out by the kids. As a demo, the OLPC guys set out a challenge for the kids to replace the OLPC motherboard. Watch it on Youtube.

All this is exciting but as the writer points out: these are well-off kids who have obviously had a long experience with technology and whose background is pole apart from the demographics of those for whom the OLPC was originally meant.

The challenge will be to make those poor kids as tech-savvy as the ones in the above story – and that they aren’t content using the OLPC to view porn.
