Some Enchanted Yves-ning

olpc2.jpg

Apparently we’re not the only ones enamored with one Yves Behar, judging by the crowds who thronged the Luminaire showroom for his Artists for One Laptop Per Child benefit opening last night. We couldn’t get close to the Golden Boy, who was constantly surrounded by groupies, well-wishers and hot women. As consolation we tried to talk to John Maeda, but he evaded us before we could approach him. He is a nimble one, that Maeda. (And so young-looking! Must be all that simplicity). Suddenly, just when we’d given up hope that we’d ever get our own Behar moment, the crowds parted and there he was, curls and all.

Someone must have tipped him about our extremely professional infatuation because when we first met him he greeted us with a kiss (right cheek, and no we haven’t washed it yet). When we told him we were with UnBeige he brightened even more. “Of course!” he said. “You have been very supportive of all this.” (If only he knew how much more supportive we could be…) We asked for a photo, then, just as quickly as he’d come into our life, he was swept back into the crowd, and we were left glowing in the light of Olafur Eliasson‘s mirrored OLPC piece. Sigh.

Like these laptop icons? You can get one inked on your arm over at the “As long as it lasts…” tattoo parlor.

The laptops are tiny-tiny, like typing on a Treo or something. And of course the default homepage is Google.
