Last night at 9:45 p.m. ...

The 9:00 p.m. show India This Week on NDTV featured the story on the 100 dollar laptop. Sorry, no links (yet)! Here's the link; but the video requires a subscription!

A member of the design team behind Children's Machine XO said some good things about the machine; then Ashok Jhunjhunwala of IIT-M talked about some of the home grown efforts to address the issue of technology for the masses -- particularly for the rural masses. The story ended with (almost) the last word from me. I'm just grateful that Amulya Gopalakrishnan, the reporter on this story, chose some of my my best lines!

There you have it: twenty seconds in a two-minute story embedded in a 60 minute show. All in all, an interesting experience.

    Amulya used to be here over at MIT herself.
