So as many of you know, there was a post made on December,22,2011 byhere on Google+ public to all of his quarter of a million + (260,000) followers talking about how he made a discovery of how to chain a mobile hangout etc. (As I had done back in August of this year already being the first person on Google+ to take the concept to the next level including taking many people here on the road with me for true mobile hangouts where I chased drunk drivers (You can find these videos of the whole hangouts on here and by searching youtube, all from back in august) while I entertained plenty of people with my methods and captured live accidents happening from my mobile dashboard 1080P cam setup as well as tours of the city of Montreal.
Not only didpost sound strangely like what I had been doing since August of this year, but he also attached a photo to his post, a photo that was taken as a snap shot of an actual hangout I did back in august where I was running a police scanner and rushing to the scenes of police activity happening in the city, all live in the hangout for everyone to watch and enjoy.
So, now I decide that I should comment on the post, asking him why he was misleading his 260,000 followers with this post and not giving me any credit for my discovery/idea, let alone his attaching of an actual photograph taken from right inside my own vehicle while doing a mobile hangout right onto his post.
I try to comment and I am told I am not allowed to comment on the post, so then I try to give a plus one to comments or posts on his page and I am still banned from doing so.
I then realize, not only did this post happen and is being accepted by over a quarter million people who it has been sent to in their streams and made publicly available through the search feature to the rest of the world using my content, I am banned from even calling it out, how's that for awesome.
People can and will easily argue that an idea can be thought up by anyone and then someone can think of it at another date, granted, but seal the deal with a stolen photo of my dashboard focused on a street in Montreal, along with other people in the photo that can attest to it being from my car and being in the actual hangout when it happened many months back.
I put the word out and several people likewho happened to be the person who was not only in the hangout pic that posted but also was the one who actually took the screenshot on his pc published it back in August. Also other people such as , , and my friend who also happens to be my Lawyer posted comments on his post making it clear as to where the content originated from.
Three Hours afterposted in my comments section a clear message about the matter at hand, edited his post and added a +mention of my name beside the photo he used in his post. (Not that this clears everything up for one important reason since the post was originally made on the 22 of December and was seen by everyone mainly on that day and the next, now it takes someone a good five minutes of scrolling down the posts on his page to even find this one, buried deep. A proper retraction would be far too much to demand of someone with as much respect and over a quarter million followers and a well known tech writer at that.
I am sure many can relate.
