    Hi everyone,

    Over the last ten weeks I have been very excited about the things we
    have been talking about and I have attempted to share this excitement
    with my family and co-workers.

    They all think I'm a bit of a wierdo now. My wife throws up her hands
    and shouts "BUNK" because it sounds like a bunch of science fiction.
    Most of my co-workers will talk about it but they have no interest in
    becoming part of the solution.

    One friend today said... "Heh.. someone else will fix that stuff, why
    should I worry about it?" I explained a bit more why he should worry
    and still refused to accept the problems as real and was convinced
    someone would solve them long before they threatened his lifestyle.

    The maintainers of the bootstrap.org web site might want to consider
    putting together a HOWTO document with tips for how to become a
    bootstrapping advocate.

    Here is an example:

    Its the Linux Advocacy mini HOWTO document and it provides suggestions
    for how the Linux community can effectively advocate the use of Linux.

    Becoming a bootstrapping advocate is something that every one of us can
