One laptop per child
Global
MIT Media Lab is working on a laptop that would only cost a 100 dollars to produce, offering a way to provide millions of children worldwide with a new learning tool. Except for large data storage, the laptop will do basicly the same as a any other one. Available P2P technology will allow information sharing, while more research is being done to create a straight low cost internet connection. What's more, the Linux based computer will use innovative power, including wind-up.
To be expected by the end of 2006 or early 2007.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
