Chasing ChaseCringely.org

It appears that the Chase Cringely project website that I mentioned earlier is finally up. It’s just a shame that nobody paid any attention to content or usable design. Because they’re using TWiki to run the site, it looks like they are more interested in a Buck Rogers character than in saving others like Chase. Why is it that most open source projects seem to be hostile to outside help even though that’s what they are trying to get?

I’m interested in the MonitorPad suggestion, particularly the idea that it could be combined with a regular baby monitor. As we have been thinking about getting a baby monitor, I can say that we’d definitely consider something like the MonitorPad.
