Update 29/4 #2
Some nuggets from Disqus:
My response to Sifferkoll addressing his COI matter appears to still be suppressed. Regarding your questions – the APCO conspiracy story was pretty funny. The entire uberconspiracy concept is a Rossi offensive plan.. He is the one who fired off a lawsuit and simultaneously unleashed a smear campaign/PR war.
I am sharing my first-hand experience as a shareholder and point man for the broader IH mission. I am authorized to share all data that is in the public domain to date. Rossi has unleashed litigation and a coordinated PR war as part of his plan to attempt escape from IH. He is the runaway inventor. I am sick and tired of the smears against Darden and got a little to riled up in that regard – not my best moments
I don’t think the Apco connection is funny at all. It materialized way before IH even knew about the complaint (read my blog). So how the f.ck could this be a plan of Rossi …???… Mr Weaver, if you at least done some research you could have avoided this mistake!!!
I take coordinated as compliment (since I do not consider myself alone to be especially “coordinated” most of the time … ) 🙂
The spinning continues. Latest from the Weaver:
IH wanted to test the referenced 1MW unit in Raleigh before shipping it to Miami but Rossi insisted that was a waste of time. he did the same thing for the Lugano reactors. The “ERV” report / data, which will be soon released, will give you the answers you need to make a final decision. The reactors that IH did build and test in their lab, per Rossi’s instructions, sadly never produced even a watt of excess heat.
Well, since IH at this point deliberately had delayed the test by failing to find a suitable place during a whole year in Raleigh this comment on ECW is a new contradictory statement by the spinning Weaver … Why delay, and why trying to negioate Rossi out of it? And why being optimistic until November 2015? It only get worse …
So. It’s all over. Mats closed down the comment section on his blog after a veritable troll-fest …
The by far most interesting discovery has been the identity of the nickname @nckhawk, being Dewey Weaver of Deep River Ventures, a stakeholder in Industrial Heat and a close friend of Tom Darden.
I’ve analysed his activities in a couple of posts here, and would like to summarize it in what I believe to be the most important information. Browsing thru his posts searching for substance and it dawns on that he has been very careful to only spin often contradictory ad-hominem rumours about Rossi, Fabiani, Levi, Penon, etc. and apart from these attacks talked mostly in “ifs” and “buts”. To be clear, I can not find any place where he actually states that the Rossi technology does not work. He only inserts doubts; FUD.
Here he states that the replication attempts failed quite early, which is as close as he gets. What is interesting is the timeline. Ie. before the MW test even started … I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again: In line with my “delay” hypothesis, IH tries to get out of the MW test by pretending not find a place to do it, and also trying to negiote Rossi out of it completely. Wow!
To answer your question, I fully believed Rossi after first meeting him, studying the Ecat and reading the test results. We all did. It was only after replications attempts failed to produce ANY results that the doubts began to creep in. IH didn’t want a 1MW reactor but Rossi insisted. IH offered substantial sums of money for Rossi to produce 10 watts and / or 100 watts of excess power from a single characterized and verified reactor as an alternative to the insanity of the 1MW test. Rossi would have nothing to do with it and insisted on a 1 year, 1MW test. He shipped out from Raleigh to Miami and it went down hill from here. That’s about all I can say on this for now.
But, but… The above spin was done after the complaint was filed. In march he said on ECW:
I was cautiously optimistic around Rossi and his technology, especially after IH bought in. That has changed with Rossi’s light speed pace of evolution over the past 4 months – it is not humanly possible for 1 engineer with 2 or 3 helpers to pull all of this off. All I see now is a circus act moving from one ring to three.
At that point, not knowing about the complaint, only knowing IH was not going to pay Rossi he was totally focused on the MW test. He says, that until October/November he was “optimistic”. They were at this point planning only to not acknowledge the MW test, but continue to accept earlier replications … They were certainly not bashing all of it; only the “speed pace of evolution”
I do not know about you, but to me it looks very suspicious.
In a previous post I asked if Weaver considers the Leonardo Agreement valuable from a business perspective. The only answer I got is somewhat vague, but again it is not what is said that is important, but what is not said.
… my interpretation is that the IH license with Leonardo is a valid paid-up license …
followed by more “ifs” and “buts”. This though is a clear and truthful statement I believe, but carefully avoiding the discussion about more important aspects.
I’ve been saying it before and do it again. IH consider the License Agreement very VERY valuable because it keeps Rossi in a tight leash from an IP point of view, at the same time as they keep 50% of the world market (GDP) for E-Cat products, also aiming for it all by stealing IP and patent it, even outside their own territory.
This business only hypothesis is actually the nicest one I can come up with. There are far worse and scary ones.
