The New York Times profiles CMU's Raj Reddy and his ambitious plans in this article, stating:

"Raj Reddy was fed up debating the problem of the digital divide between the rich and the poor and decided to do something about it.

Mr. Reddy, a pioneering researcher in artificial intelligence and a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, plans to unveil at the end of this year his new project, called the PCtvt, a $250 wirelessly networked personal computer intended for the four billion people around the world who live on less than $2,000 a year."
