OLPC G1G1 final numbers

8 01 2008

Zach ponders his codeA couple folks have asked me how successful the OLPC “Give One Get One” program was, since we participated in it to get Zach his XO.

OLPC News reports:

OLPC just announced that G1G1 raised $35 million dollars with the sale of 162,000 X0 laptops – half (81,000) destined for Haiti, Rwanda, Cambodia, Mongolia, Afghanistan.

I’d call that pretty durned successful.
