Columbia Buys 65,000 XO Laptops From OLPC

About 65,000 Columbian children in the country's Caldas region will soon be getting an XO laptop. The project will concentrate on small towns and rural areas that will get the first 15,000 XO's, the remainder will be distributed over the next 18 months to larger centers. Caldas's Governor Mario Aristizabal said they were "committed to giving each and every child of primary school age the same opportunity to access knowledge as the most privileged children in New York, Berlin or Tokyo".
