This Week in Ubiquity:

Volume 7, Issue 31

August 15, 2006 - August 21, 2006


          Gutam Kumar Saha describes a low cost technique for gaining
software implemented fault tolerance without using design diversity
based N versions redundancy in both software and hardware. The proposed
approach uses an enhanced single-version programming (ESVP) scheme for
an application that executes on a single machine.

          Michael de la Maza believes that the greatest promise of the
"One Laptop Per Child" project (OLPC) lies not so much in education per
se but in the ability of a $100 laptop to support new social structure.
