So the One Laptop Per Child initiative hasn’t exactly managed to put a laptop in the hands of every kid on the face of the earth. But this week the group did manage to outfit every single child in one country with a laptop. That country is Niue, a tiny island nation in the South Pacific.

How tiny? Like 1500 people tiny. I’ve lived in buildings with more residents than Niue. A donation of 500 laptops was enough for every child in the country to have one. But hey, OLPC has finally lived up to its name. That’s got to be worth something, right?
