c|Net News published some beautiful pictures of Nigerian students powering up their $100 open-source laptops. This school is the first test deployment site for One Laptop Per Child's XO laptops. OLPC installed a satellite dish, power generator, and modem to give the school electricity and Internet connectivity.
A while ago I told my fellow worker Marisa Catagno that 1 BILLION PEOPLE ARE NOW CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET!, she said, well, "how about the other 5 billion!". Good point, Marisa, hope that the OLPC will help equalize things.

The "rabbit ears" are the wireless antennas.
