What if a newspaper bought a boatload of $100 computers and gave them away, maybe in the poorest neighborhoods. The outside would be branded and the default, unchangeable home page would be the paper’s Web site … what would that mean for the paper, the community, the culture? And would the ROI be worth it?  And throw in some free wi-fi hotspots, or maybe wi-max, in those same neighborhoods — what about then?
