The Woman Who Build Herself A Toilet


via Appropedia (Sustainable technology wiki):

Toilet. Internet. OLPC.  Bollywood. SRLY?

The world becomes a weirder place day by day.

But looks like a really interesting group interested in Open Source sanitation information available over the internet.  The posters are designed with a Bollywood-esk look to garner enough interest to go to the website.

As silly as this idea is, I love it.

(note: they’re using a beta revision of the XO hardware (B2).  You can tell by the green hinge case.)

    Thanks Seth for the kind words. At Akvo we really do believe that open source can be useful in so many more places than in just software development.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Open-source/Open-culture is the way to go with this. I’m exploring your site a little more deeply today and I have to say: I like it a lot.

    Let me know if you need/want anymore OLPC pics ;)
