I remember learning the song “The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You” when I was growing up and going to school (Kindergarten through 3rd grade) in Lubbock, Texas. (No, I did not decide to attend UT as a result of that musical indoctrination at an early age!) Certainly the eyes of the world are on OLPC now.
I am also reminded Scott Carpenter’s words to John Glenn before Glenn’s first trip to space in Friendship 7: Godspeed.
Godspeed OLPC. The eyes of our planet are upon you.
