Yes.  The quote is in a 2column/2inch press release that was *mauled* by
the CW hacks.  CW have since been chastised, as has my boss. ;) the quote
is in association with the webserver survey my other company runs every
month. The new survey is out tomorrow and the results are frankly unnerving.

Note.  There's absolutely *NO* way we can control the press, and it's easy to
absorb infinite amounts of design time talking to the b*stards - and they'll
*still* misprint.  The trick is to put a press-release/history/quotable
2 paragraph generic bullshit section in some prominent place in the web pages,
and just have done with it.

The 'indignant emphasis' should correctly extend to:

	DEVELOPED BY THE MAGAZINE WIRED in collaboration with the
	ACADEMIC COMMUNITY

since clearly this ignores the contributions of the majority of the developers,
who already have day jobs etc...

CW have an e-mail address, speak to them.
