Did Josh know this guy from before? Because I think the vid is made to make Josh out to look like an asshole, why would he be so belligerent from the start?

Josh is very clear that he does not want to talk to Micon because they have a previous relationship.

If you keep watching the video Micon goes on to tell how he is going to shit talk Josh on the forums.

Micon is essentially shit talking Josh and defaming him because he doesn't like Josh. You will note that the questions he is stating "the community has a right to know" were never actually asked to Josh, they were presented to the forum in a way that made people assume they were an issue.

They were never an issue. Micon is just being a jerk.

That being said there are issues with BFL, I haven't seen a picture of a working ASIC rig anywhere. You would think there would be one. But Micon is doing the community a huge disservice by approaching BFL in this way. Why not just ask some questions through the proper channels? Why the drama? It's not helping.

Oh right, ask through the proper channels and get a sheep like response of " Yes we are still in R&D rah rah rah just another excuse " .

They know that in person, they will get a bit of shit and the guy cannot even handle a professional approach to get him out and away... Its being recorded, the way of which that idiot from BFL labs responded is horrible from a corporate investors point of view, the guy should be fired on the spot.

With 25 million dollars in pre-orders I would hope someone is jumping up and down more than the troll that apparently made the video, because otherwise these guys will get away with spending your pre-order money, shit they probably already have! Nexus 7, damn - i bet they are driving around in nice wealthy vehicles by now.

What a douche. Is trying to be funny or is he really that arrogant?
Did he know that he was talking to micon? It looks like he did.

Even if BFL won't scam I wouldn't give them a quarter.

No shit... he will just give it right to Micon.

They both look like dicks. I hope that people don't get scammed as bad as I think they are, but at the same time I hope ASICs never come out.
