LXer: One Laptop Per Child Doesn't Change the World

Published at LXer:

Hands Across America, Live AID, the Concert for Bangladesh, and so on. The American (and world) public has witnessed one feel-good event (and the ensuing scandals) after another. Each one manages to assuage our guilt about the world's problems, at least a little. Now these folks think that any sort of participation in these events, or even their good thoughts about world poverty and starvation, actually help. Now they can sleep at night. It doesn't matter that nothing has really changed.

Nice rant. Doesn't say much that is useful or even sensible, but it is a nice rant nonetheless.
