Squeak for every child

Lately I work on Squeak integration in the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, perhaps better known as the "$100 laptop". The whole etoys group came over to OLPC's office in Cambridge.

Ian Piumarta took some nice pictures, which might very well be the first photos of the actual display in the wild.
