Here is a solution for the people who have criticized the OLPC project because they would rather send food donations than educational tools to developing countries. (Even though the places where the OLPC project will be adopted are not the regions where the population is in imminent danger of starvation. But I digress.)

Get an OLPC device via the Give 1, Get 1" program, which runs until December 31. Then use it to go to freerice.com, the site where rice is donated via the United Nations to relieve world hunger. Play the vocabulary game, and for every word you get correct, 20 grains of rice will be donated. There you go: the best of both worlds.
