Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.
Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: https://dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop.html
what are some good projects to use old laptops for? i'm feeling really silly about still having these old machines lying around. roughly the ages/makes are: a 15yo thinkpad, a 10yo thinkpad, and a 7yo macbook pro.
