One can't deny that currently technology development is booming globally. Even in poor places, such as the African continent, where millions of people are dying of starvation, a project has still been implemented to supply them with cheap computers which will be able to access internet: the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) Project, which I have discussed in my previous posts.

Things do not stop there. IBM and Google have teamed up to set up an educational plan where participant students will be specially trained on web-based applications. Universities wishing to offer Saas (Software-as-a-Service) course will be provided with the necessary resources to do so. Students will have access to remotely-hosted software via the internet, such as the Google Search Engine, Google Applications or IBM's hosted services platform (the latter are yet to be implemented).

One should note that Open Source is the trend this project intends to follow.
