I did *NOT* create the AppStore wars video

Major blunder in This week in Lotus Episode 6. I have not been asked by Stuart McIntyre or Darren Duke regarding authorship of the AppStore war video. Nevertheless they seem to know that I created it. I did not. It is not my style of language and attributing me as the author will lead to serious trouble for me (there is something like IBM employee conduct guidelines that exclude this type of language for IBMers). I discovered it on YouTube (after being tipped off). Guys you owe me an apology.

    Stephan, that was not our intention at all, and if we did intimate that you created it, then I can only apologise.

    However, your original post { Link } (at least until it was recently updated) did not make it clear either way - certainly there was no statement that you had just come across it and were sharing on that basis.

    Once again, I'm sorry for any upset caused. Emoticon embarassed.gif

    Stuart, your "However..." seems to be like trying to weasel out or to actually blame Stephan. First rule of journalism is to check your facts.

    @Stuart: Apology accepted.
