OLPC First Deployment

A blog post about the first OLPC deployment. Uruguay.

About a thousand machines were given out in three days. Another seven thousand will be given out in Uruguay in the next two weeks, and another 90 thousand in the coming months. Peru is next: they signed an order for 260 thousand today.
