I agree, and I think we have a few very good candidates right now.  Micah's
launchpad is something we should run with, David Madore's typing game ought
to get some attention, and a gradebook program should be high on our priority
 list (I got private mail from a fellow who is very interested in pursuing
that; I asked him to subscribe to the list and to help gather a team for that
 purpose).  The Linux Tutor program about Linux and more generally about
computers could also be very useful.

I absolutely think we ought to work with the GNOME project.  Arturo Espinosa
Aldama is on this mailing list and I think some of the things we're talking
about here could be helpful to his Scholar Net program.  I also think
internationalizing whatever we come up with should be a priority.  If we
don't show a US- or North American-centric mindset we may get useful input
and assistance from many more Linux community members.
