OLPC fans and curiosity seekers turned out for Jordan Crouse last night a the Boulder Linux User's Group meeting last night. (The guy lounging next to an OLPC is Neal McBurnett.)
Jordan skipped right past "the children," Sugar, and other things you read about in the press, or watch on YouTube. He went right for the throat; his third overhead was a picture of the board. The rest of the talk was things like BIOSes (or the lack thereof) and power management.
The office he works for, in Fort Collins, is AMD's Center for Excellence for CoreBoot, the Linux, Open-Source bootloader for X86 architectures: a good resource to know about.
