It is a tale about a fictional billionaire in the near future, who decided he could make this a better world by giving a free, high quality laptop to every destitute person in the world. (This, after receiving over many months, unending pleas by e-mail to help the starving children of Africa.)
I also posted this parable to pagan, shaman, and other spiritual (and gay) newsgroups (same date). Click here to view one such article via Google.
This will verify the date.
Well, yesterday, Oct. 3, the SF Chronicle's technology section published a news article entitled: "MIT Team prepares $100 laptop for children across Third World" (page F2). (I live in SF, and read the local newspapers daily.)
Unfortunately, I can't find that particular article in their online news archives, so I'll have to refer you to a couple of online sources:
The first reference (Bostonist) includes an illustration similar to mine...that is why you should view my Laptop Billionaire tale on my weblog: to compare their image with mine. Theirs shows a laptop with Third-World children's hands reaching out in the screen. Mine shows a Third-World child's face holding up a scratch board with binary numerals.
This is no coincidence: I am a prophet, whose angels have assured me some years back that my prophecies would be increasingly affirmed and proven to a larger and larger audience across the world. (After many years experience all this in private: a most frustrating experience, however wondrous...just goes with the turf of being a queer shaman).
Thus, I bring attention to this latest revelation. Certainly good news for gay people, and all other persecuted souls...and pagans, for that is the tradition which I follow most reverently.
