A bit off-topic, but this is an idea I've been toying with for a little 
while now: a web-based interface to see coreboot in action. Somebody 
visiting the site is presented with an option, to start the "machine" 
(most likely QEMU) with either coreboot or the factory BIOS. They can 
then see the "machine" start up, and use busybox or bash to do some 
basic commands, look at the coreboot log, etc. I'm not a real web 
developer, so I have very little of an idea what it would take to do 
this, I just think it would be cool. Comments?
