  • When Nicholas Negroponte (above, right) of the MIT Media Lab showed off a prototype OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) at NetEvents in Hong Kong, ZDNet UK's Rupert Goodwins was there with his camera. You can read a transcript of Negroponte's talk here.

  • The first picture from inside the Shanghai factory where the OLPC is being built. The laptop just visible in the bottom left-hand corner is the very unit demonstrated at NetEvents, according to Nicholas Negroponte, although it still sports prototype plastic, electronics and software. The button for full-scale production won't be pressed until July 2007.
