But, maybe, just maybe, there's a little Anakin in that Darth Brady. I can't fault him for supporting OLPC, or their Holiday drive. OLPC is a Foundation that has Fancy Pants, and Plans to Match. NewsRadio allusions aside, they do good work--they seek ways to finance Solar Powered, Linux run, inter-connected laptops to Africa, South America, Asia--wherever the lack of electricty precludes computers. They make laptops that are tough, simple, and efficient. In short, they are attempting an end-round solution to the lack of infrastructure to the poorest of the poor.
No less a figure than Cory Doctorow, the Friendly DungeonMaster of the Internet has endorsed OLPC .
So, I guess, stop hating Tom Brady long enough to listen to the message. It is a good one.

I love this organization. This was my first year participating. Up until now, I think you had to buy two computers. I do know children to whom I could have bestowed such a gift, but let's face it, in my neighborhood the kids already own very impressive machines. This year you can opt to donate only. Awesome!
