This is for people already committed, already part of the community.
It's a great program, I got my XOs from it.
But it does not get new people into the community. Like those who want
to tinker in private. Do something cool because it's a cool machine.
They would happily shell out a couple hundred bucks even if you slap a
"no warranty at all" sticker on the order page. This will not reach as
many people as g1g1 2007, but having a place to simply order is
essential (even more so for long term projects like in classrooms).
