OLPC: Doomed?

I hate saying this, but the last few months of news have not been good for the OLPC. First, they had horrible issues getting out the laptops they promised people in the US right around Christmas (and many still have not gotten them). Then their Chief Technology Officer, Mary Lou Jepsen, left to form her own company in January. Intel backed out, and then the CEO Nicholas Negroponte revealed early this month that he is looking for a CEO to take on the primary leadership role for the organization. Then Ivan Krstic, the director of security architecture, left this week in response to those recent changes.


And I thought not having a working control key was bad. :(
