David Pogue is right about the OLPC in his NYTimes column this week. For those of you who haven't kept up with the changes in the One Laptop Per Child he sums it up nicely, demoing all the engineering miracles in the machine, addressing the low minded complaints of "snarky bloggers" (Where?!), going on to explain why it's an interesting and important thing for the developing world.

(David, I'm kidding. Nice column this week.) [NYTimes]
