A Working Hundred Dollar Laptop Unveiled

100laptop_1I received an email from my dad this afternoon saying somewhat incredulously, "Nicholas is really making this thing happen."  For those of you who don’t know, "this thing" is the Hundred Dollar Laptop and Nicholas is long-time TED friend and speaker, Nicholas Negroponte.  The evidence that Nicholas is making the Hundred Dollar Laptop happen can be found in this photoset of the first working prototype of the Hundred Dollar Laptop that was just unveiled on May 23rd.  Check out the photos.  It is looking really slick.
