[linux-elitists] NYLXS Press Release on the OLPC Project

What I wouldn't give for a Lombardi's pizza right now.  Is it the water, 
the coal-fired oven, the attitude ?  It's simply impossible to replicate 
anywhere else.  Same with bagels.  They tried shipping New York water to 
Boston to see if it was actually the water -- turns out it wasn't, alone, 
at least.

Similarly, you can have all of the elements of a press release: the ideas, 
the framing and the emotional hooks.  But if you don't have a coal fired 
oven AND the right water, AND the cockroach eggs in the flour, AND, well, 
an actual pizza chef, it might not turn out exactly like a real press 
release.
