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

> pa/2012/03/01/gIQAiOD5kR_blog.html
> 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,
> Tom

I posted a comment with a link to the Post's retraction, but it has not
