Brazil, Uruguay: Videos of OLPC's XO Computer in Action

One Laptop Per Child News, an independent blog that provides “news, information, commentary and discussion” of the XO recently added videos of children in Uruguay and Brazil test driving their new laptops. The post's author, Charbax, writes, “I think that the OLPC foundation just needs to make sure that a few more of these fascinating videos from the actual OLPC test schools are filmed by the local reployment staff and then that those awesome videos be put on the Internet for us to have an idea how it is like to use the OLPC in the actual classrooms. This should be impressive enough to convince most of the sceptics around the Internet, about the awesome potential that is in embracing the mass deployment of XO-1 laptops all over the world as soon as possible.”
