One idea I’ve come up with for my portfolio (part of my application to grad school) is to make an interactive digital picture frame/portfolio. I’ve found a few articles (like this one or this one) on hacking up an old laptop to act as a just a picture frame, but they don’t address a few important issues that apply to my project. Namely, boot times are still quite long, and the articles don’t talk about the software used.

In light of those two issues, I’ve been reading a little bit about Linux and kiosks. Seems like it might not be an impossible undertaking…
