One more thing...
I've read that Koki was hired to head marketing at Haiku.
If this is the case, and funds from the Haikubounties were used for
this, I find it pathetic that Haiku can hire someone with the money
before thanking the people who donated or letting them know what was
done with the funds.
If that's not the case, then fine. It's this type of information that
Haiku needs to disclose and make public however.
If Haiku would have hired me (or anybody else, for that matter), it
would have been made public (as it happened when Axel was temporarily
hired in the past). I invite you to read the article that includes the
announcement of the new marcom team:
Since this touches me personally, I will respond.
As you can read in the last paragraph of this article, a marcom team was
formed, and I am the team lead. That's all there is to it. So, to answer
your question without any room for misinterpretation, I do this as a
volunteer, and receive no monetary compensation from Haiku Inc.
Information can be distorted as it goes from mouth to mouth. You can't
help that. But if you that want to be well informed (rather than
misinformed), it is always good to go to the source of the information,
which would have been www.haiku-os.org in this case.
Having said that, I would appreciate if you could point me to where you
read that I was hired, so that can request a rectification of the
information if possible/applicable.
I take the opportunity to inform you that we have just published a
public recognition for assisting Haiku through HaikuBounties.org, where
we also express our gratitude to the generous Haiku fans that actually
made the dontations. Please see:
I realize that this may be too late, and perhaps even not enough to
appease your current irritation. But I still hope that you will show
some graciousness, and could take this as a sign of reconciliation.
After all, while we are dedicated to the Haiku cause, we are still
volunteers with a life, family and work/school to deal with, cannot
always do things as fast as we would all want, and are likely to drop
the ball from time to time.
