"Laptop in Guyana"
Posted by choyrizo on flickr.com
Caption: "I donated my old laptop to a guy in the Peace Corps and he brought it to a classroom in Guyana--Many of these kids have never even seen a computer before, so it's pretty neat to see my laptop there."
This is an inspiring picture that makes me think of Guyana's future, which I hope is bright.
This is choyrizo--I didn't know about your blog before--thanks! Phillip (the guy in the Peace Corps) will only be there for another couple of months, so before he leaves I'm going to try to send them some more software, a battery reconditioner with a couple of extra batteries (since it's never clear how much longer those things will last), and maybe even one or two ibooks if I can win them off of ebay. Because their village doesn't have electricity, they have to bring the laptop to a neighboring village to recharge, so they are thinking about setting up a solar generator for it, which means it is probably good if they have some backups.
