Liste de projets suggérés par C. Scott Ananian

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 )
