Heard of Keepod? Nope, nor had I.
 
It's a bootable memory stick[^] with a PC version of Android on it that will boot any PC, even if it doesn't have an HDD. They have given one to each child at the school, the idea being that if they download a virus it can't affect anyone else sharing the computer. So each child carries his favourite, preferences (and virii) with him from computer to computer.
 
And a small chunk of an enormous African slum gets connected to the internet (via the traditional carrier bag router and "unofficial" electricity) and a bunch of children get a small-but-noticeable chance to improve themselves and maybe, just maybe, work their way out of the slum.
