Nicholas Negroponte, the MIT Media Lab director turned non-CEO of the nonprofit One Laptop Per Child project, is working with Amazon.com to start shipping out the green-and-white laptops that no one really wants to Europeans. It's been a year since they were first offered for sale in the United States via a buy-one-give-one-away program. Thus far OLPC has only sold about 600,000 of its machines. After a brief spurt of interest, most consumers have turned their attention to the cheap laptops known as "netbooks" instead. [BBC]
