BBC News’ take on Groove Takeover

Mr Ozzie, 49, created Lotus Notes for IBM in the 1980s, the first messaging application to achieve widespread sales.

OK, how many errors in the quote above?

    Well, I'll start the obvious ones...

    1) Notes not created for IBM

    2) Notes not a messaging application.

    3) Notes not the first messaging system to achieve sales.

    Now, Notes 1 was 1989, so it's fair to say is was "created" in the 80s, although it is misleading in that it sounds like it was created and then just DONE, rather than continuously developed for 15 years.

    Is Ray 49?
