Jeff Kampman articles replaced by Renee?

Tue Oct 08, 2019 7:53 am

I was doing some research yesterday on the Nvidia power bug (since it's still a problem with my Pascal card in 2019) and came across this:
https://techreport.com/news/30552/nvidi ... 54-driver/

The article says it was written by "RENEE JOHNSON" when I know for a fact it was written by Jeff Kampman. Looking it up on archive.org confirmed this:
https://web.archive.org/web/20160824031 ... 54-driver/

Did Renee just rename Jeff's account to her own? I checked a couple other articles that Jeff had written over the years and noticed that they were also replaced by Renee. She did not write these and should NOT have her name associated with work she did not do.

Thoughts?

But I doubt he requested that the articles be attributed to someone else.

Yeah, replacing with something like "Tech Report Staff" would've been more appropriate.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Oh right on, I guess I'm behind the times.

Still it's confusing to see her name on stuff I know was written by someone else.

It's really not alright and the biggest reason I don't visit the front page anymore.

It's okay, since then everything else has been written by Eric Frederiksen.
