Random thoughts about using computers to do things. Presently using an Alienware Aurora Desktop (Windows 10) , a Dell XPS 13 developer edition (Ubuntu 19.04) a Dell Precision M2800 laptop (Windows 10), a Mac Mini, an Apple iPhone 7, an Apple iPad 6, a Samsung Galaxy S8, a Samsung Tab A (2018), an iPod Classic 160GB plus CD's, DVD's, USB keys, and zip disks everywhere. Enjoy learning computing with me.

One laptop per child
Giving one of this laptops to a child in the developing world(including Afghanistan) makes rational economic sense for buying a laptop for the kids in your life too. Where else does 399$ US buy you a kid proof laptop for younger kids? You could buy a used older laptop I suppose. For the 399$ your kid gets a designed for kids laptop and then another one is donated to a kid in a developing country. Sure they need water and food more than a laptop. But buy someone a meal they eat for one day. Teach them to grow a meal they eat for life. The laptop can be seen as a tool for building communities. Visit www.laptop.org
