Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your Grant Scheme proposal.

One initial question is regarding security of the kiosks. You mention
placing them in areas covered by security cameras, but it seems to me
the biggest risk is someone just picking them up as they way past. Do
you have plans in place for physical security of the kiosks? Ideally
they should probably be built into some kind of actual 'kiosk-like'
cabinet that's physically secure, possibly using a repurposed cabinet
from some other purpose.

Also, what benefit does this approach have over, say, spending money on
having a bunch of CDs pressed commercially and just putting them out for
people to take? I'd be interested to hear how you came up with the idea
of setting up "DIY FOSS kiosks" and what other approaches, if any, you

Cheers  :-)
