Collaboration!

Just on the off chance that people read my blog but not Chris Ball's, I'll point out his recent Multipointer Remote Desktop demo. This is a key technology for improving collaboration, and I think it's relevant both to OLPC and to other little companies which might be thinking about collaboration features. Multi-pointer stuff is just a much different experience than "watching" someone else drive the display, as numerous studies (such as this one) have substantiated.
