  Thank you, Walter,

  Ah, yes.  I would think that we could emphasize the "openness" of
platform so that letting people setup their own Jabber server would be
one way to go, as it is more likely that the buyers of G1G1 will have
some other computers.

  Still an SNS system hooked up with laptops ID might be good.
Customizable SNS engines like OpenPNE could be a good starting
point to set up something relatively in short time...
