On November 2, 2010, ten young residents of a Gaithersburg community, sponsored by the Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC), traveled to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. They provided feedback for a photography application in development, installed on "One Laptop Per Child" "XO" computers. Under the direction of photographer Joanne Miller with cameras provided by the artist, the kids captured images and downloaded to "XO" laptops, powered by portable solar panels. Mike Lee of Sugar Labs, D.C., a developer of activities for OLPC, provided technical support. The kids hands-on feedback helped the program designer improve software used by children around the world.
"One Laptop Per Child" was created by Nicholas Negroponte and others from the MIT Media Lab. Their mission is to manufacture and distribute affordable laptop computers to every child in the world providing them access to knowledge and modern forms of education. The MIT Media Lab provided the computers.
