At 4:50 in the clip on YouTube, Dr. Negroponte responds to the interviewer's question about the difference between the implementation plans of the OLPC XO and Intel Classmate PC with:
"The difference is that Intel's approach is much more teacher-centric. Ours is much more child centric. And that in some sense is a philosophic difference. It's not a technological difference."
Then Nicholas Negroponte goes on to question why Intel would criticize a program that is asking for $150 Billion dollars in start up funds, utterly dwarfing any existing nonprofit or even foundation budget, for "energy" in schools:
I think that Intel has made a very big mistake, criticizing us, because we are a humanitarian effort and it really is not very intelligent to criticize it. [...]Do you think Intel, with around $30 Billion dollars in 2005
And we don't compete with them. And they tell me all the time, they're interested in the next billion units. And I say, I'm interested in the last billion units. So these are very complimentary approaches. They really go together."
I think not. But good attempt at spin, Dr. Negroponte.
