From: "C. Scott Ananian" <cscott@cscott.net>
To: "OLPC Devel" <devel@laptop.org>, its.an.education.project@tema.lo-res.org

I'll list a grab bag of project ideas in this email.  Some of these
are high priority, some are low, some have OLPC people working on
them, some do not.  The list is certainly not complete!  Please
respond to this email to list things I've left out or projects you're
currently exploring, or to express interest.  I've tried to list some
email addresses by each idea of OLPC folk who are interested or could
give more information.

(Help wiki-fying this list would be appreciated!  See
