It seems that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program's XO laptop is just popping up all over lately. Twice in as many weeks, mention of the green and white laptop has appeared in the most unusual places.
The first appearance was when I recently flew down to southern Indiana to attend an annual IT advisory committee meeting. I used to drive to this meeting when I lived in Indianapolis, but now that we've moved to the northern part of the state, driving an 11-hour round trip for a two-hour meeting is a bit crazed. Luckily, there's a new commuter airline that gets me close to the university.
The first leg of the trip took me to Indianapolis, which still feels like my home airport even after a year away. There, I saw this ad, all big and backlit on the corridor wall across from my gate.
