This is beginning of something real good.

    Folk computing is developing computing environments, not just user interfaces, that will bring computing to the rest 5 Billion people. This could not be done by just reducing the cost or developing ‘natural interfaces, but also providing environment in which content could be created and accessed by anybody independent of languages and educational background.
