Just found out that the company I work for (Critical Mass) is giving 100 Laptops to children in developing countries. I have to tell you—it feels pretty good working for a place that gives back. And it's got me thinking about how I can go the extra mile this holiday season. Whether Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child effort ends up being a case study for success or failure, at least it's an attempt to reach out to our fellow brothers and sisters in places far away—and what a great way to demonstrate that although worlds apart, we are still connected. When we're given opportunities, it gives us a great excuse to give back the gift of opportunity. Thanks CM.
