If the OLPC laptops have Wi-fi, then perhaps a database of locations of
wireless access points could be logged. Instead of using GPS, the OLPCs
would triangulate their position based on the known locations of the
wireless access points.
This would be really helpful when used indoors where GPS coverage is
lacking. A student could locate a teacher or another student that is using
an OLPC in a large school building.
