Humanware and harrison Apology

This morning I felt happy to see a note from Earle Harrison saying that he and Humanware have reached an amicable way to permit him to continue selling MSP from Code Factory – my favorite portable solution.

I would like to take this time to apologize to my friends at Humanware for jumping to extreme conclusions about the dust-up with Earle and thank those who sent reminders that there are two sides to each story.  Blind Confidential doesn’t claim to be impartial and has often taken the position of a personal friend over that of a more well researched publication.  As I said in earlier posts, this year, BC is heading in a more creative direction and will be less about the details of the AT industry as impartiality is becoming increasingly difficult for me as I reenter the biz a bit.

I apologize for fanning the flames and hope I didn’t do much long term damage.

  1. Hi,

    Can he still sell HandiTech braille displays, or was he forced to decide whether to sell MSP or the braille displays. Or did he lose his contract for another reason. altogether.

  2. Howdy Comrades!
    I am well pleased that Humanware and Earl are back to cozy. I was about to set up a Free Earl Harrison Blog and began drafting letters to the ambassador of New Zealand. Now I can tend to getting Chen Guang- Cheng sprung from the gulag. Not to mention the dust-up between NFB and the State of Texas over the inaccessible Oracle software. Oh, and to add insult to injury, my operatives just discovered a Republican plot in the Texas Ledge to exempt small communities from the access provisions of the Help America Vote Act. I sure miss Mollie and Miss Ann. Regards, Chairman Mal: Power to the Peeps!
