Here's a photo from WSIS flickr stream.  A comment mentions this quote: "A slightly embarrassed Mr Annan inadvertently broke the crank handle of the non-functioning model on display as he left." The full news story.

Andy Carvin, who is doing an incredible job of reporting from WSIS, made an 8 minute documentary.

Here's some reactions (in English) from the Khmer Open Source blog community and threads from digital divide list when the laptop was showcased last month in Cambridge, MA.
