Why Brazil’s not buying Negroponte’s laptops – thanks to Valleywag

Seems Gilberto Gil’s quibbling about the project’s “spiritual dimensions.” Bless, I know what he means too, though Valleywag seems a tad confused — maybe that’s why they refer to Gilberto by his surname Moreira.

Update — guess I was a little hard on Vallewag, as today (4 Jan 2008) they’ve got the news that Intel has pulled out of the whole deal. Good for Gilberto too, must have been using his ‘spirtuality’ to good effect.
