I have mixed feelings about this. We were glad to have a chapter in such a 
prominent cocoa book at all (and to have replaced the Java chapter, no 
less!) but you are not the first to have claimed 'Hill o' Gas' is a 
charlatan. I don't think he was intentionally out to sully our name, but 
he sure wasn't very nice to us either. The mere fact that we've got a 
chapter is an accomplishment, IMHO, and in the future we make take on more 
relevance within that comminuty.

Evidently, before the chapter went to press, it was sent to Adam Fedor 
(our project admin) for strict factual review. At the time I was unaware 
of this and I do wish it had been more widely distributed because a few 
outright falsehoods would have then been avoided. You can thank Greg 
Casamento, the author of Gorm and the individual who put together the 
BookClarifications page, for his work on reviewing the chapter.
