OLPC makes the big bold move to open source

Wonderful news that OLPC’s XO-2 is going to be open source hardware (crunchgear). This is a brilliant example of s*** happening, facing reality and adjusting course.

I’m not a critic of the project but it’s been a victim of success and the goalposts have completely moved. This change of course engages the maximum breadth of resources on the original mission – improving the lives of children. It will also create endless fun for those who want to innovate around the concept.
