Devices as computers will change the world

February 28th, 2012 in kidsoncomputers, mozilla, PlanetGNOME, Web/Tech

At Kids on Computers, we’ve spent a lot of time and energy getting computers to kids that have no access to technology. Many of these places (rural Mexico, Africa, India) have cell phones before they have phone lines or even power. (The second time you blow the power for an entire school trying to set up a couple of computers, you realize how much we take power for granted in developing countries.)

So the new devices coming out right now are really exciting.

These devices, using open source software and open web technologies are going to bring the web – and the world – to more people everywhere.
