Tech journalists from 14 leading publications will go head to head Dec. 16 to raise $10,000 for One Laptop Per Child to distribute 50 laptops to students with disabilities in the U.S. But instead of competing on a story, they'll be challenging each other as DJs.
The 14 journalists, from publications including Advertising Age, Forbes, Maxim and Wired, will face off on Turntable, an interactive social-listening platform, starting at 12:30 p.m. (ET). Audience members will vote for their favorite DJ, and donations can be made on the Tech the Halls page on Crowdrise. The winning DJ will present the money to OLPC, a nonprofit whose overall goal is to provide every child with a laptop.
