Stephen Colbert

Hello, All. I'm new. My name is Allan Straub.

Last night, on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert performed a long protest about how he had not yet been given a free iPhone - something to which he, as a celebrity, is apparently entitled. The thought struck me that a free Neo1973 running OpenMoko should be sent to him as soon as possible - it would be great if we could beat Apple to the punch. The motivation is that we can, hopefully, get some rather hefty publicity - maybe even in preference to Apple and iPhone - to the teenage/20s-age demographic, which is the biggie for cellular telephones. If we toss in some stuff about open source being "software democracy," he should eat it up. I'd definitely be willing to chip in some money for this if we needed to come up with dedicated funding for the phone and the shipping. 


Thank you,
Allan Straub
