It might be old news but it's a damn good "event" (I think the pic on the right is Reuters'). It looks like we finally brought the joys of the internet to those less fortunate as said by a user at Slashdot. Children from Abuja were found (no evidence whatsoever) to be using the donated OLPC's laptop (One laptop per child) for browsing adult websites. As soon as the developers heard about this (expected from the public) event, they held back the laptops and are preparing for heavy censorship using filters.
Maybe they haven't succeeded so much in providing the less fortunate ones with the "great stuff" of the Wild West by presenting their OLPC project. I frankly believe it's a waste of time and money to bring laptops to those who in a great percentage will not appreciate it and will use it for such events. I mean hey, they it free of charge and you go breaking its good reputation and the hard work people put on this mega-sized project! Check out a lovely "internet is for porn" at youtube :)
