Misassigned credit for conduit

When I was at ICFP last week, it became clear that I had made a huge mistake in the past three years. A few of us were talking, including Erik de Castro Lopo, and when I mentioned that he was the original inspiration for creating the conduit package, everyone else was surprised. So firstly: Erik, I apologize for not making it clear that you initially kicked off development by finding some fun corner cases in enumerator that were difficult to debug.

So to rectify that, I think it's only fair that I write the following:

  • conduit is entirely Erik's fault.
  • If you love conduit, write Erik a thank you email.
  • More importantly, if you hate conduit, there's no need to complain to me anymore. Erik presumably will be quite happy to receive all such further communications.
  • In other words, it's not my company, I just work here.

Thanks Erik :)

UPDATE Please also read my follow-up blog post clarifying this one, just in case you're confused.
