Intel PR honcho puts spin on OLPC relationship
Earlier this month, Intel and the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project announced that Intel has joined the OLPC board -- a surprise given the previously reported acrimonious relationship between the two organizations. We spoke with Will Swope, Intel's vice president of corporate affairs, about the reconciliation and what it means.
Before speaking with Swope, we asked OLPC President Walter Bender how the reconciliation came to pass. He said, "Nothing deep; we decided that working together was the best way forward for the OLPC mission."
