It is I! I've been avoiding it for far too long.

As to the topic at hand, I agree with both Bill and Glen. Bridging the
gap seems like a good idea, since people sometimes get scared of
things they shouldn't be. I'm also a fan of "tools/gadgets" type posts
where you talk about your favourite tool or trick, just to spread the
word. I find it's a good way to learn about new software/tools/tricks.
