Randal Schwarz Talks Squeak/EToys on the XO

Randal Schwarz, Perl expert/Smalltalk convert, talks about Etoys running on the XO (the One Laptop Per Childmachine) over at Lab With Leo.

Randal runs through the moving a car/steering a car warhorse--which, if you've seen a demo of Etoys, ever, that's the one you've seen--but this is a very good quality video and sound, and a nice energy.

Emphasis is on tech, naturally, so it probably won't help to stem the tide of "What do third world kids need computers for?" challenges, but he does mention that you can steer a car on someone else's computer. That I'd like to see!
