There is. If we could get what the story really is, anytime there's a
post on Slashdot on OLPC, we can just post the straight beans there.
The particular story I posted is still active right now, and if anyone
makes a post, I've got moderator points right now and can mod it up.
The thing is, most of the people on Slashdot (aka the Internet
Geek/Nerd Community) who post about OLPC topics know nothing about
what's going on as they just get their info from 3rd-hand sources and
haven't even touched an XO.
Since we know a little bit more, it would be very informative to the
world at large to set the story straight at these forums.
