  7. really? if a couple of them could read and get on the internet they might just learn some farming ideas that will help them grow food. information is king.
  8. yes welcome back. now all we need is a black monday thread. just kidding surfer.
  9. The MIT Media Lab people just might have been inspired by a book by Po Bronson, published way back in 1997, about creating the $99 PC. It was made into a film by 20th Century Fox in 2002:

    The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest

    It's a fun flick, easily living up to the promise of its catchy title. Memorable quote from IMDB:

    Andy: "How's things?"

    Tiny: "Entropy is winning."
