GOOD NEWS, XOniverse!

According to a press release, the G1G1 program has been extended to December 31!

For those of you not in XOniverse, you may recall the XO laptop and the program being run by OLPC (the non-profit behind the XO) where if you pay $400, they'll send you an XO laptop and they'll also send a 3rd World kid an XO, as well--it's called Give 1, Get 1. The period in which North Americans could Give an XO and Get an XO was originally only supposed to be fifteen days--from November 12 to 27, 2007. However, thanks to $2 million a day in sales, OLPC is extending the program to December 31, 2007.

So, if you're thinking about it, you've got a bit larger of a window--but don't expect Amazon.com service--it could take as long as four months to receive your XO and it runs $25 for shipping.

Read thepete.com/tag/olpc for more of my blogging on the XO and the G1G1 program.

You can also check out laptop.org or wiki.laptop.org to learn more about the XO from the source.

Or if you're ready to make the jump, head to XOgiving.org and place your order.

I'll be blogging on the XO as I come across news or when I have new experiences to report with the XO. I still have yet to spend any more time with SugarOS, but I hope to do that once the first draft of my novel is done. So be sure to stop back and see what's new. Feel free to drop me a line if you've got XO news.
