Intel There's nothing like allegations of predatory conduct to bring two organizations together. Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child project has decided to bring Intel on board as a partner and a possible future supplier, just a few months after Negroponte went on 60 Minutes and essentially accused the chip maker of trying to destroy his low-cost PC project. Intel has agreed to join the board of the OLPC and work with the organization on possible "collaborations involving technology and educational content," according to a press release Friday morning.

Since when is offering viable competition "foul-smelling"? Negroponte isn't the only one who wants to offer a low-cost PCs to developing nations. Why should he be the presumptive favorite, even if his motives are apparently philanthropic?
