Its all happening these days in Massachusetts

Hot on the heels of some interesting developments in terms of the adoption of Open Document Format comes intriguing stuff surrounding $100 laptops for kids. The article says that the state of Massachusetts has committed to providing every shoolkid with a laptop. The article doesn't specifically say that its the $100 dollar variety but I presume it is. They sound really, really interesting. Can function on wind-up power. Run a thin Linux. Ruggedized. Can form mesh networks for Internet access.

I want one. Actually, scratch that. I want five!
