Michael Arrington's $200 web tablet project

techcrunchair.jpg

Noted hardware engineer Michael Arrington has asked the world to build him a "Macbook Air-thin" web tablet for $200, which he will then offer as an open source reference design. It should run Linux, Firefox, and Skype, he requests. Since only one of those is a company that can be invested in — and has already been purchased by eBay — I must presume that Arrington has funded a small tablet plantation.
