Learning Friends - Quest

The gods at MIT, besides bestowing us with monthly "suicide prevention" holidays, grant us the entire month of January off between terms! So, I'm taking the opportunity to fly out to San Fran, work with Learning Friends, and stay with Ann, in Woodside, CA. I'm really looking forward to it! I booked my flight out for Dec. 30th - Feb. 3rd...

We're currently looking into a possible project to adapt LF's educational software for these MIT prototype laptops.

Learning Friends
is an early stage company determined to solve the learning problem of children at home and at school. At this stage, we are raising funds.


Approximately one third of the U.S. population is functionally illiterate. In addition, a vast majority of children aren't prepared for the complexity of life in the 21st century. Learning Friends will revolutionize the education process, making it possible for children who use the Learning Friends service to master not only the basics, but "expanded basics," how to learn, adapt and apply their knowledge in a global environment. Learning Friends will offer the solution to the learning problem, both at home and at school.


Enable children ages 4-9 to master an expanded set of basic skills, including how to learn, adapt and choose in a global environment.
