I agree on that. The article was not as well written as it should be. But the 
blog is open to everyone in the Paparazzi community who wants to contribute 
articles about paparazzi. If you want to help out and write articles as well as 
help proof reading/editing the articles I am happy to give you an account. We 
are using a skype channel to synchronize our efforts on the blog. You can reach 
me as esdentem there.

Hope to hear from you soon!
