In light of this, OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte has revealed that the OLPC initiative plans to spin out a separate organization during 2008, dubbed OLPC America, to bring their low-cost laptop computers to students in need in the United States. Details are scarce right now, but Negroponte says OLPC America has already been given a director and a chairman and is moving along at a quick pace.
Interestingly, expanding to the US may also give OLPC a much needed boost by generating enough demand for the machines to lower costs all around.
