I meant to blog this when I saw it come through, but I’ve been playing catchup since the expo and only had time now. This is cool; Dailymotion have an XO friendly section (xo.dailymotion.com) which I have a feeling is going to be a very valuable resource for A/V demonstrations on the devices and of course for kids with Internet access. Now there’s a competition being held, in order mostly to make people aware of the option and increase the exposure of the project in general:
Dailymotion, one of the world’s largest independent video entertainment websites, and One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving education in the developing world, today announced a holiday contest to support OLPC’s Give One, Get One campaign.The contest, which runs from November 17, 2008 to December 15, 2008, calls for Dailymotion users to upload original commercials for the Give One, Get One campaign. One winning commercial will be selected from among the submissions.
