A question (if there’s time): How would you go about building an ultra low-power writing appliance?
Requirements:
Capable of running ssh, vim, mercurial, and possibly pandoc

Small form-factor (no larger than a full-sized keyboard without numeric keypad)

Minimum 4×40 characters of text visible on screen

Useable without a flat surface (i.e. your lap)

Runs from battery, but with a life measurable in days or weeks
