do you think it were possible to somehow push into the server (and then 
up to the Internet) suitably anonymous data that tells at least what 
activities have been started (at least a count within a timeframe, say, 
every week)?
As part of this "cloud" effort?

Reason: After all these years, we have not yet much reliable data on 
whether the XO or Sugar is used or not, or what it is used for, if at all.

Background: I have long suspected that there has been no desire for this 
data, because it might show bad news, like Sugar or the XOs being used 
little or not at all.
However, if that were the case, then we *really, really* need it so much 
more, so we can re-direct efforts.

Likely issues: About anonymity: I am unsure how much the matter of 
privacy is a valid excuse for not getting this data.
Since it seems OK to have the tablets distributed in Ethiopia take 
pictures of the kids and families very much without their informed 
consent, I guess that having data on what Activities get started, how 
many times per week would be totally OK, but still believe privacy 
should be taken seriously, yet without paranoia. (no, I do not think 
those automatic pictures are OK, but that's my personal opinion).
