My response to the crap being spewed on TFP's site:

So let me clear up a few things that are wrong with this article and its
portrayal of the facts.

#1.  Iron Gaming won the $10,000 Warner Brothers digital media prize in the
Gigtank Event this summer.  We also receive $15,000 in seed capital that
was funded by local and regional venture groups.

#2.  EPB valued our proposal for the "EPB Gig Gaming Center", an extension
of the GigLabs project, at $50,000 per an email from Danna Bailey to me.

#3.  We were asking for the "Gig" only to help promote EPB in the media by
visually showing and making a physical representation of what a "Gig" can
do for gamers in EPB's customer base.  This service would have been
exclusive to EPB's customer base and have provided a way for Iron Gaming to
promote our gaming league in the region.  Did we NEED a gig, no.  When we
finally asked to pay for the service, we kept getting referred back to
Danna Bailey and as of August 2 (before the end of the Gigtank Contest) we
have not heard back from anyone at EPB.

#4.  Our relationship with Comcast has been fantastic from an Iron Labs
(brick and mortar gaming store) and Iron Gaming (online gaming league)
perspective.  Comcast has helped open doors for us and provided a
significant amount of support for our startup.

#5.  My only "beef" with EPB is that the people we were dealing with did
not understand the technical details of what we were offering and therefor
did not value what the proposal could provide them.  To this day I do not
hold any animosity towards EPB and will still do all that I can in
supporting them and the growth of the startup community in the "Gig City".
