Extra Aqua Vitae Nulla Salus


The $100 computer

Interesting comments from the Globalisation Institute.

Makes me wonder: what's wrong with the developing world's adults? No, seriously. Why are we all about giving 10 year olds power tools, instead of their parents?

Is it just me, or does it seem like the west is saying "fuck the parents, let's try the next generation".

Given what you can buy for $100 that we already know will help the lives of the world's poorest families, the whole effort seems odd. I mean, cheap laptops are great…

But why do you want the governments of the world's poorest countries to buy millions of them, when giving a cow or buying some grain would seem to help more.
