VPRISoftware was the wiki site for the Viewpoints Research Institute (VPRI). Also known as the VPRI Software Wiki, it was a repository for VPRI software ideas and projects.

Viewpoints Research Institute (VRI) is a non-profit public benefit organization ... to improve "powerful ideas education" for the world's children and to advance the state of systems research and personal computing. Many of our themes co-evolved with the inventions of networked personal computers, graphical user interfaces, and dynamic object-oriented programming. ... our group invents computing technologies, content, curriculum, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), programming languages, implementation systems and processor and memory structures.

Alan Kay at VRI developed the Squeak Etoys programming environment, which is installed on all OLPC XO-1 laptops.

FoNC is an ongoing project to create a programming language substrate and springboard for investigating new computing paradigms.

Fundamentals of New Computing wiki (FoNC wiki): http://www.VPRI.org/fonc_wiki/ [1]

... also has some information on programming the OLPC (related wiki: OLPC).
