The best way to counteract this kind of erroneous information is for IEEE
802 ensure the public has a clear, concise understanding of IEEE 802
projects status and of the significant success with regards to 802's track
record in developing standards that result in widely adopted standard based
products in the marketplace.
The IEEE 802 news bulletin provides such a vehicle achieving this public
awarness. And as the article you reference illustrates, we need to be more
proactive in getting accurate 802 information out in a timely fashion.

Paul and other SEC members,
I still find the article below (as "corrected") to be
inaccuarate and offensive in several respects.
Does anyone know why this Mark LaPedus seems to
"have an axe to grind" with the IEEE standards
process (his "deck-stacking" comments) and IEEE
802.11 in particular (the last 4 paragraphs below)?
Is he just a sensationalist who doesn't give a damn
about the accuracy, or effects, of his articles, or
