friends, people I've meet, free software people on free software related
mailing lists like Trisquel.

I wanted to have texts/versions/paragraphs/etc that I cut to what I
think will be the most effective for the audience.

I have also been thinking about how it seams that people aren't working
out what this means for them, hasn't/isn't "clicking" with them. So I've
been wanting to have a why that err makes senses, one that they fall in
love with.
This is what I am thinking about, when thinking about "why":
