Look, I'm really sorry for the confusion, but I don't know how else I could
have done this on deadline, given that I'd contacted HDF in the past and
was given Michael's name as a spokesperson. When I interviewed him for this
story, he asked him to reply as a spokesperson, ie. "What does the HDF
think of these comments about hackers?"

We talked about this Thursday and he said "It is confirmed, I am now an
official spokesperson."

So if he isn't -- that's good that I know that. I would love to recveive a
press kit, or at least an email to me with David's full contact
information. I've not seen any such thing since I started here in 1996 and
I want to get you guys in our coverage.
