Ahem. Hi. I just wanted to say that I am hugely thrilled by those low-cost laptops Google is organising for developing countries, because... you can power them with a treadle! Like an old-school sewing machine! How awesome is that? I want one.

Now for just a dollar a day Basrati won't have to wait for her myspace page.

Seriously though, I have been reading about biblioclasm and the destruction of knowledge as a part of ethnicide in countries like Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kashmir(technically a province not a country) Cambodia and Iraq which is really sobering stuff.

What is most shocking is that only fifteen years ago Kabul was a flourishing, cultural capital and before the Khymer Rouge Cambodia had a high rate of literacy, a proud heritage and was a fairly well modernised nation.

Good on Google! I hope these can be used to help rebuild these devastated nations.
