Company stuff a bubblin'

I'm trying to figure out what's up with all these efforts:

HP's fall product launch for teens -- http://news.cnet.com/8301-10784_3-9946396-7.html -- Ameer Karim, director of HP's future and innovations group for consumer PCs, announced launching a new line of products designed by teens at SD Forum's second annual Tech for Teens event, Teens Plugged In.

Sun's spinout of Fresh Brain -- https://freshbrain.org -- a cool learn-to-do-digital toolbox for online teens, sprouted with Sun tech and Sun people.

And during June 2-4, 2008, Parsons The New School for Design's in New York is the platform at its 5th annual Games for Change -- http://www.gamesforchange.org/conference/2008/expo.php -- for two companies' annoucement:
Fascinating that these are projects facing the tech communities, and not facing educators, parent groups, and the like. Or are they? Anyone know of any plans to actively market these endeavors to parents and families directly through their own media?
