This is a very interesting project. As Jim Groom describes it, "Sandstorm is an open source platform that enables you to host open source applications that aren’t predetermined by more mainstream, highly controlled hosting software like CPanel... So, with Sandstorm you can basically provide an indie web distribution hub, kinda like the Merge or Dischord Records model for distributing alternative music."  Related: Docker. "Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications." So why are these significant? Imagine all of these functions - blogging engine, RSS reader, etc., in the hands of each student instead of merely in the hands of a teacher or class.
