I rearranged it and also corrected the text - same with the Alpha text, it's not simple copy/paste. Thought putting it after ars - since the price money funded its development and before the end - which is what's still happening would be a good idea... but could change all of that if you think that's a better idea. Also I thought it's good to put the Alpha in the history, because it is an essential part of the history...
Hope that's how you envisioned it!

Being an internet phenomenon is as you are probably aware by no means assuring quality. I guess there has got to be something out there , which is probably less "fun" but better suited. Probably some talk of Jonathan Zittrain? I can look into it if you think that's necessary...

OK, after watching both of the videos, I'd say they are very easy to understand and not too specific at all. However, the way this dudes presents it is a) quite goofy, which is not only a bad thing as it makes it "fun" to watch and his dumbed down version makes it very easy to understand. Nevertheless, it's a question of style if apertus° necessarily wants to walk this path to the same extend he does (which is kind of implied by embedding the video). b) In the second video he is very focused on the open hardware = good karma part. I think this is a very obvious and therefore boring point to make. Pretty much every other advantage of open hardware is more exciting and interesting than that and he hardly addresses it (maybe besides that you can still get rich and famous with open hardware products, which is again not the greatest point to make) – but that's my personal opinion.
Generally, you can tell that it is very community orientated and maybe that's what apertus° is aiming for - my question is: isn't that where apertus° has already scored big time and wouldn't it be time to convince these from outside of the community of it's awesomeness?

Wow - I find it really difficult to listen to this Aussie troll, couldn't make it past the intro yet - will try to pull through to form a proper opinion...
