I'm sorry, I guess I'm just stupid, but when I read a story titled "Report from HOPE", I expect to find a link to a video of the presentation, or a transcript, or something. Probably I missed it -- maybe the audio link that I took for the 2008 presentation? I didn't get past the lame apologies. This has happened before: can't slashdot have an asterisk or something to indicate THE MAIN LINK REFERRED TO IN THE STORY TITLE???!! Sorry, bit frustrated here, even tho, yes, the wiki article on open source hardware is nice, but really ... .
And if there is no link, which was the conclusion I finally reached after a lot of useless clicking, could you please indicate it, as you do by saying "paywalled" -- maybe "user report only, no direct link" or some such, to save readers' time?
