技术乌托邦主义和后果的迷人检查它的复杂。

魅力机,摩根·埃姆斯记录了每个儿童一台笔记本电脑项目的生活和遗产,并解释了为什么 - 尽管它的失败 - 令人鼓舞的OLPC相同乌托邦的愿景仍然激励其他项目试图用技术来“破坏”的教育和发展。

Announced in 2005 by MIT Media Lab cofounder Nicholas Negroponte, One Laptop per Child promised to transform the lives of children across the Global South with a small, sturdy, and cheap laptop computer, powered by a hand crank. 在 reality中, project fell short in many ways& mdash; starting with the hand crank, which never materialized. Yet the project remained charismatic to many who were captivated by its claims of access 至 educational opportunities previously out of reach. Behind its promises, OLPC, like many technology projects that make similarly grand claims, had a fundamentally flawed vision of who the computer was made for and what role technology should play in learning.

在五十多年历史和巴拉圭的一个模型OLPC项目的七个月学习绘画,艾姆斯发现,不仅令人沮丧的使用笔记本电脑,容易断裂,而且很难修复,他们是专为“早熟技术 男孩“ - 理想化的年轻开发者自己的版本 - 而不是谁是卫生组织使用它们的孩子。 魅力机 提供有关技术炒作的诱惑力,并且导致当乌托邦梦想推动技术发展的问题的警示。
