Is One Laptop per Child stalling?

A month or so ago, I blogged about the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project pioneered by Nicholas Negroponte. I pointed that, following support at a critical time from the then President of the Nigeria, Negroponte decided that the laptop would bear that country’s national colours of green and white.
But that was then and this is now. It is reported that the new Government of Nigeria does not seem to have the same enthusiasm for the project. Indeed a spokesman for the project is claiming that a lack of “big thinking” by politicians has stifled the scheme. But Negroponte is not a man to give up.
