Entertainment, EP122: Transcendence Express, by Jetse de Vries

James Cameron-2
The story Transcendence Express by Jetse de Vries appeared last week on
Escape Pod, the science fiction podcast magazine.

It has relevance to OLPC ...

1.  examining the effects of a laptop deployment, of sorts,

2.  passing mention of $100 laptop in the introduction,

3.  mention of OLPC and a quote from Nicholas Negroponte in the end-piece,

It is rated R for some adult content, which is mild in my conservative
opinion.  The science fiction technology basis is interesting ...
quantum computing, though potentially unsatisfying to some.
