There have been many proposals on this list and in the past from other
sources for all sorts of community learning centers, libraries to get
more involved in new forms of archiving information to be displayed to
youngsters, fablabs as a truly humanitarian education (*do* stuff,
act, that sort of thing), etc. I also think this falls in line with
some of the proposals regarding switching over to teachers competing
for specific students, which our Hungarian list subscribers might be
able to comment more on (m1n3r?).
