I've been thinking along those same lines as well.
I actually am spending about 50% of my time doing security development
for the OLPC (Nortel
is a sponsor of OLPC, and through some internal deals, I got to spend
50% of my time on
OLPC for the last several months).
I did do some paper-tiger designs for a simple front-end to the audio
subsystem for HF reception.
But I was told my time was better spent on other things...
