One Laptop for Every Child and a Shout-Out to Monitor

One of the projects Monitor was working on here was trying to get Libya to be the first country to receive Nicholas Negroponte's sub-$100 laptops for every school-aged child in Libya (around 1 million on total).

Yesterday, an agreement was reached between Negroponte's organization, "One Laptop Per Child" and the Libyan government to make this ambition a reality. Read the New York Times article here. Please note the fifth paragraph from the bottom where Monitor gets a shout out.
