Re: [seul-edu] Metadot Donates Internet Software Worth $1 Million toSchools Worldwide (Business Wire)

This is great!  Just by way of information, the article tell us SEED is a
product of Schlumberger.  This company is a major player in worldwide energy
development.  I knew many of thier engineers when I worked in the oilfields,
and I was always impressed with them.

What is neat is the article referenced the fact this support would be "to
provide Internet connection to disadvantaged schools in developing countries
where Schlumberger operates."  They operate in any country where oil is
produced.  I can see that this, in part, may be driven by the need is for
skilled labor pools.  No matter what the reasons, they are bringing the
internet to places where it may not have been before.  The internet is a
fine beginning to get the resources to improve local education.  Go Team!
