I'm not for stifling conversation, per se - but in the interest of
focusing this list and the project, I'd suggest there are other lists
for other projects and for the general topic of distributed internet, eg:
Many of us here are lurking there, too.

Eben did give a speech and talked about making a FreedomBox; he did talk
about plug computers; funds are being raised for this thing on
Kickstarter; and this list is hosted on a debian.org domain where there
are also wiki pages with specifics (ie. http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox)
That's not to say that Debian on a plug computer is the only way to
achieve the goals, but I am saying that this list is about the specific
project that aims to do it that way.
