India was one country that rejected outright Negronponte’s suspect vision of the OLPC as an “educational” tool. Nearly a year ago, I expressed my own doubts that the OLPC, seen as a replacement for teachers, could be taken seriously. Earlier this year, the high profile resignation of Ivan Krstić led to more public questions on the future of the OLPC.
