Google to save OLPC?

That's what i'd like to see. OLPC is a disaster, due in no small part to the fact that Nicholas Negroponte is a criminal just like his brother.

So, what company could both save and directly benefit from the project - thus making it possible?

Google, of course.

The primary work Google could provide? An operating system.

We've already speculated on the possibility of Android replacing Windows on the desktop. And, if need be, could pay for the development.

Also, Google could make sure the project stays in the spotlight and open to scrutiny - starting with the replacement of Negroponte as the leader of the project.

p.s. I think providing computers to Africans and small villages and all that might be a dubious proposition. I'd like to see more on the supposed benefits of the program.
