Submission + - Australian government backs OLPC (

angry tapir writes: "One Laptop Per Child Australia had a win in the recent Australian budget, receiving federal government funding for the first time. OLPC Australia will benefit from $11.7 million of funding, which will be used to purchase 50,000 laptops to distribute to students. The organisation recently launched a new initiative that builds an educational ecosystem around the laptops, to help integrate them into the learning process (Slashdot discussed it not that long ago.)"
