Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is 2B1 conference.
The 2B1 Conference was held in 1997 at the MIT Media Lab with the purpose of circumventing technology barriers between the developed and developing World. A core premise was that young people tend to learn computers faster than adults, thus, it is imperative the young populations of developing countries get access to computers so that as they grow up, they can interact with the rest of the World and encourage more social and economic prosperity. Many concepts preceding the One Laptop Per Child project were discussed at the 2B1 Conference.
The 2B1 Conference was also the birthplace of Nation1.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 22:04 UTC on Friday, 01 September 2017.
