The XO has come a long way since its inception in November 2005 thanks to the hundreds of volunteers. This year 2015, will be 10 years since the 1st protoype was shown to the world. Let us celebrate how far we have come and not forget why we participated:
"This is not just a matter of giving a laptop to each child, as if bestowing on them some magical charm. The magic lies within -- within each child, within each scientist, scholar, or just plain citizen in the making. This initiative is meant to bring it forth into the light of day."—Kofi Annan
This is my first posting in 2015. Hope 2015 will bring another round of momentum to keep the spirit alive for olpc 2.015 and beyond. Perhaps a world-wide reunion and celebration!
Personally, it has been an incredible journey of learning for me when I got my G4G4 XOs and celebrated the Year of the OX in 2008. We had fun taking the XOs for rides in the Year of the Ox,Tiger, etc. The Year of the Dragon and Snake followed.
olpc 2.015 will kickstart in the Year of the RAM.
I still dream that XO4All will become a reality as I remained optimistic after all these years!
