This is sent with my OLPC.  What a great idea this project is.   It
goes to show what can be acccomplished ny dedicated individuals,
something familiar to a lot of people in these two groups.

The thing does appear to have sufficient horsepower to do some DSP.
I would like to think we can make several things available to this
project.  For example, I think a tunable HF receiver for shortwave AM
broadcast is easiy achievable for very modest cost. Further out, I
would to see the use of this machine and OFDM skywave to provide WAN
capability to large areas of the world without such capability.

At least one Negroponte clearly has heart and vision.

Happy holidays and I hope everyone is looking forward to 2008 with as
much anticipation as I am.
