ok lets ask the easy things
1. what needs to be done?
2. what finances are available or required
3. What support is there or required?
4. where is that to be found?

I know that the inkululeko (? see hilton's postings about that) stuff
could be useful at the schools level.

There are some good open source stuff that is being used. As an example,
I spent the day today at the smartcape installations at libraries.
Interesting and exciting stuff going on.

All depends on those 4 questions at the top.
