From the G&M:
RackNine Inc. chief executive Matt Meier says a web designer and marketer who operates under the name of “Rick McKnight” is a Spaniard named Rafael Martinez Minuesa.Well, if Matt says so.
The firm says it initially balked at revealing his true identity because they didn’t want to breach their staffer’s right to privacy. But journalists quickly drew media attention to the mystery staffer.
Mr. Minuesa has since consented to the release of his real name “to clear the air.”
“There is absolutely nothing to hide with RackNine,” Mr. Meier said. “... Five minutes searching on Google easily demonstrates that there is no hidden story beyond a hard working, honest person.”
By the way, commenters in this post beat the major media by several hours.
Maybe more on this a little later.
