Chile, Costa Rica: “Un Computador por Niño”

Ricardo Carreón, General Manager of Intel for Latin America, describes a pilot test of Classmate PC (“laptop for kids in emerging markets”) that he attended in Costa Rica with Intel CEO Craig R. Barret. On a related note, Carreón points us to a collection of YouTube videos about Chile's “Un Computador por Niño” program [ES], which strives strives to provide free and unlimited access to PCs to 1 million children before 2010.
