Onderwerp: [SIGCIS-Members] Washington Post retracts email story & Ombudsman    column

Hello everyone,

Good news from the email battle. The Washington Post's Ombudsman has posted
a lengthy and detailed retraction of his previous column.

This will also make my life easier, as I no longer have to try to present
the actual history of email, correct the Post's errors in the original story
and Ombusman blog, and debunk Ayyadurai all in one article. We can shift the
focus to the real history, which is ultimately more productive.

Best wishes,
