Former AltaVista UK Head Claims He Was A Scapegoat

from the sure-you-were dept

The former head of AltaVista UK who lead the launch of their unmetered service that never actually launched is now claiming that he was a scapegoat. It wasn’t really his fault. He was just in charge. TheRegister takes a look at some more details of the scam. If you’re the guy in charge it’s really tough to claim that you’re a scapegoat… You certainly can be a completely incompetent leader who has no idea what’s going on, or a lying bastard who hides what’s really going on, but I don’t see how you can be a scapegoat.
