Sorry Wayan Vota
In the previous post I wrote in an insensitive manner about Wayan Vota's idea of 4P Computing, without really getting to the root of the idea that bothered me so much. In that post, I made an untrue assumption about Wayan's actions and motivations (writing that he had pushed his idea onto wikipedia), which he had not done.
I'd like to apologise for that and will make sure to research my statements better in future, especially where they reflect on someone's character.
In my partial defense (of course, I concede guilty as charged), I was editing ICT4D on wikipedia and the amount of link spam and trash that lands in there (and often its impossible to get rid of) just got me thinking in a unilateral manner.
Humble apologies, Wayan.
