    awesome article and idea. I live in Boston so I little pride for this idea coming from MIT here is cambridge.

    The ability to learn almost anything off the internet would open the door for many people in less fortunate areas of the world to study and learn for a fraction fo the cost. Imagine, one my college textbooks cost a 100 bucks, and a laptop you could learn from wiki-pedia basically for free. An iniative of this sort starting and funded by america would be money better spent than the billions of dollars spent on other "endeavours."
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    Microsoft and Intel not behind this? It's not like they've got the most to lose over this? Oh, hang on...
