Prolly my fav post so far Ollie. Lots of things to think about.

I'm working on a project that uses android.FaceDetector "A class that permits basic recognition of a person's face as contained in a bitmap. You cannot get much more personal than your face. Using this as a device lock means no more passwords to remember — biometrics capability on a cell phone."

The reason I mentioned that is that the Android SDK stuff is open source so I can easily build in educational/classroom use apps. I think these 2 explosions (Open source + New social demands for more information) will complement each other perfectly and leave to a perfect storm of programming creativity. Imagine replacing the "select pupil" part from my classdroid app or using augmented reality to reward experience points on Project XPA.

Why has no one written a "weed detector" app yet that scans for weeds in your garden and layers them over the image?
