This brings us back full circle to our conversations about a year ago about
hype and hyper hype. Talking up the technology above else at the expense
of the content (and sometimes doing rather a lot of fudging at the same
time). I may be an optimist, but I sense this beginning to change,
although perhaps not as far as the media.

I have a feeling we don't want to start this thread again...
