If the time is ripe for blog-2-make then the times are truly interesting

Techcrunch is hosting/sponsoring an initiative to crowdsource a 200$ webtablet - basically the simplest Linux/Firefox/Touch screen combination that can be made - completely without any other features. If this can be pulled off without any other organization than an eager sponsor, then it seems distribution is the main problem with making novel hardware. Its interesting in itself if Techcrunch documents the proces - chinese assisted fabbing, but apparently that service is readily available from "a supply chain management company".

Also in fabbing: On demand 3D printing.
