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.

Depends what you mean by 'venture' - space travel, mass warfare...have these things ever shown even an accounting profit? They are still committed though since money is only a means to an end, not a measure of worth. Materialists and capitalists often confuse these two.
