i like the idea of the technology buttons for being able to see a more 
detailed view of the issues that will make sense for the owl 1 users.
I believe though that everyone should know that owl 2 builds on owl 1 so 
i believe something about this as an update to owl 1 should stay in the 

thus i would propose doing as you suggest with the technology buttons 
for the owl 1 perspective
but leaving something like what was in the intro as acknowledgment of 
owl intellectual history.  this could mention the expanded section that 
is coming later.
