Three cheers for easier and better building experiences.Â We are big fans of building things as a component of learning and as motivation, and have done extensive work with LEGO over the years including making the XO easy to connect with LEGOWeDo kits and other robotic tools.
Nicholas was on the set of the Colbert Report yesterday taping an interview with Stephen Colbert, which is now online. He reports the interview was tremendous fun, and it shows — this is one of the best interviews about OLPC in months. In the process he and Matt met the Colbert Crew of 80 and a supportive audience. (They had to cut a minute of the interview for time, but robots make a surprise appearance.)
Some Colbert Nation and reddit citizens have already gotten in touch with us to see how they can help raise awareness and engagement. Stephen, thank you for the interest, and the excellent vibe.
