Wanted to wish you and your readers a very happy holidays and New Year!

I also wanted to echo your thoughts on the unassailable value of OLPC. I suspect that most critics have never seen firsthand the joy of a child in a poor country experiencing a computer for the first time.

I have, in a small orphanage in Cambodia. The curiosity, sense of wonder and sheer happiness of kids using a computer for the first time is truly awe-inspiring. It's what caused me to focus my work on technology and its transformative power. I had witnessed transformation in the flesh, and it was unforgetable.
