The power of research

I was reminded today by two bright young student researchers of the power of research into education, its extents, dependencies and implications — for inspiration and motivation for all manner of work as well as to help solve fundamental problems in empowerment.  For those readers interested in helping organize research about OLPC, large-scale educational efforts, and uses of technology in education, please subscribe and share your background and ideas:

http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/research

Or post to research >at< lists.laptop.org. That list includes members from unicef, world bank, global development and university (education, government, economics, politics, sociology); while it is not currently active, it includes people who are already engaged with some few trials of their own; and many are waiting for a serious project they can engage in.  Others are simply waiting to have a project description to post (Suresh and Jennifer, I’m looking at you).  I should like to see it revived.
