in a few words, what do you think is the key elements that are stopping 
kids from doing that?
As you present them so well, it is not because of lack of tools and 
I would assume there would be a ramp up, a few at first, then a deluge. 
So far apparently really not much...

Something must be missing. After 5 years and couple million XO's in the 
wild, it's not happening (yet?), to the point that maybe it will never 

BTW, you know that the kids contributing code, they can be counted with 
the fingers of one hand... Which makes them all the more important, but, 
again, why not more? why not teachers, hundreds of them?
Maybe it's something to do with construct***sm? Evolution?
