Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka): Global Ambassador for OLPC

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Masi Oka, star of NBC’s hit ensemble drama series “Heroes” will serve as global ambassador for One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization launched in 2005 with a mission of providing a means for learning, self-expression and exploration to the nearly two billion children of the developing world with little or no access to education. In his role as OLPC ambassador, Oka will appear in public service announcements – both online and on television – to promote the importance of empowering children with learning tools and Internet connectivity.

Hmmm, who better to serve as the global ambassador for the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project than a TV nerd?  I think this is a nice choice!

So that's what he has hidden in the messenger bag he has in the picture shown above :)
