OLPC Sending Computers to Haiti to Help Rebuild

OLPC Sending the XO to Haiti to Aid Reconstruction

The OLPC XO is Haiti-bound. A "ruggedized" version of the Linux-based machine — which is already in the hands of millions of children around the world — is being sent to reconstruction groups who are helping to rebuild the destroyed cities of Haiti after last week's earthquake. This isn't the first high-tech way we've seen aid flow to the country — you can also buy apps and donate your old cell phones for the cause as well.

Humanitarian and reconstruction groups are invited to request the laptops with an application, and can also request solar-charging backpacks to recharge the machines and other devices.

I hope they don't send these for a while. Good luck finding electricity, wifi or phone line any time soon.
