OLPC is looking for college students to take on summer internships setting up XO laptops in Africa. Chris Blattman is not impressed:
One thing is for sure, this kind of internship strains my patience. $10,000 for 10 weeks of work delivering laptops? (1) That's 100 laptops right there; (2) $10,000 goes a LONG way in Rwanda; and (3) this strikes me as a job an African would benefit from doing.
