What a shame 😞
Some times, however, these events can be a blessing in disguise.
In 2017 I lost my job as a POS developer, and now I am working with automation and robotics, infinetly more fun.

Was Steven Solie really a developer?

I always had the impression of him being clueless and naive about the course of AOS4.

Yes, he is a developer. As the team lead he also helped to organize others (Herding cats)

As for your other comment, I think that being a public spokesperson was probably one of the more challenging tasks he attempted.

Thank you Lyle.

And I was testing s/w he developed as far back as '04, iirc certainly not later than '05, in the period when he did not carry that title.
If this is about "what have you done for me lately", then I object.

Yes. Spokesperson was a horrid job. Just ask HJF. heh.

There were many issues getting the x1000 up so speed when it came out, Steven fixed many, hardly clueless.

I'd also like to point out that the file updates we use to get years ago was Stevens doing, Hyp put a stop to that & Steven fought to keep it going for us, but...

Thank you Steven for all your hard work.

Wow, so he wasn't only an AOS4 developer, he also did some major changes on the A1X1K hardware ... I never knew this.

Sorry to hear this Steven. You always were and are one of the good guys.
Thanks for all your hard work and the help you have given me with my MicroA1.

While generally quite true Henning Wehn is a great comedian. Also, Sebastian Vetel has a very english-type of sense of humour and even likes Faulty Towers. It pains me to admit it but he comes across as far more likeable than our own Lewis Hamilton. You are far too harsh on the Germans. They have an efficient and clean country, give good maternity / paternity leave, respect each other and mean well. They are far more civilised than the majority of the world and are good workers prepared to pay their way in the world (a rarity in a world hooked on cheap credit). They have bounced back from the Nazi years through hard work not just through American investment and they deserve our respect.

I was told I was not trusted. When I asked for specifics I was given the silent treatment.

Perhaps being pictured having a good time with Hyperion's "enemies" was reason enough? We'll never know.

Surely this implication that the role was unpaid isn't accurate?

There was a video we produced for the Amiga 30 event in Mountain View. The video shows user names flying around and modifying components. My user name is "ssolie" in that video.

I was very good at representation...

In fact, I made it a point of being the scapegoat. In this way, my team was able to continue to focus on doing what they did best and didn't have to worry about what was happening in web forums or whatever. I purposely caused trouble with moobunny and others to draw attention to myself. It worked pretty well in hindsight. My devs were able to work in peace a majority of the time.

Good on you mate. You will be a major loss for Hyperion. I always thought you were a breath of fresh air! An approachable and humble well spoken coder who wouldn't have been out of place working at Los Gatos. I salute you sir and wish you well.

This was one of those negative paying jobs. Looking back, I sunk thousands of my own dollars into all sorts of initiatives. For example, show sponsorships, t-shirts, room rentals, give aways, raffle prizes, paying developers myself, etc.

I did do one paid contract job but that was not as "Team Lead" and that was it for income.

That said, others have suffered FAR more than I ever did. So don't think I had a tough time relative to what those people suffered. I won't mention names here.

At the risk of stating the blindingly obvious, This group is too damn small to form enemy factions.
You may interpret "group" as Amiga developers, Amigans, Betas, or however you choose.

If we cannot work together, our common thread will surely break.

Yeah, I know. "Preaching to the Choir". I'll STFU now.

Oh Nooooooo! That doesn't sound like the actions of a capricious, abusive, not paying for his own way, disrespectful man at all!
He must just be one of those honest Lawyers, who never bend bendtwist or withold the truth, and always has others benefit in mind,why at his rate, he must be in line to be the next pope,or even the UN climate change h.o.d.

Sorry sarcasm dial only went to 10 and wouldn't budge any further. But hopefully you can see my driven point.

Oh please!

The problem you and the other smoke-and-mirror artists representing Hyperion had with moobunny and other free websites outside your direct control, was that people there actually spotted the inconsistencies and outright lies that you and your fellow conmen tried to sell from Amiwest and other places, and called it the BS it was. Even today there are Hyperion faithful people that still don’t believe that Hyperion was bankrupt, that it has good finances capable of financing actual development, that there is a plan and actual execution, that Hyperion actually owned key Amiga IP, etc, while in reality all the things said on ANN and moobunny etc was true and has been true all along. If reality has caught up on you now, then fine. If you want to open up and come clean about the past, then fine, but do it right and proper. Of course everyone sees that you are a scape goat, but don’t insult people’s intelligence by claiming that this was some master plan from your side. It has never been forum posts at moobunny that prevented development of OS4, it was the fact that Ben Hermans and Hyperion are conartists without any trace of morals and ethics, and that everything that comes in contact with them turns dead and ugly. That said, I don’t think you are a bad person, only that you were deluded like so many others. One problem though was of course that you actively helped that show going, so that others were fooled as well, for a long time. But I still hope that you and the other devs who has jumped ship silently during the past 1.5 decades will find a place in the new context that is forming now, post-Hyperion.

I can only speak for myself (not Hyperion) and playing scapegoat was part of my plan from the start. I confided in a few people about this when they asked me why the heck I was taking all the abuse and playing puppet at times.

Tough luck for the trolls that thought they were getting to me. Nah! Nah!
