Thinking about using the OLPC laptop to provide a sort of trade-school experience for teens or pre-teens, providing them with the information required to undertake infrastructure projects of various sizes. The idea is to have the projects drive interest in science and technology, encouraging students to actually work to build things with the knowledge they get from the laptop. Eventually we'd hope that interest would turn into long-term interest in the trades or sciences.
Anyway, off to paying work now.
