This story examines Pixelon, "an Internet startup that claimed it had a revolutionary way to broadcast television-quality video on the Net, and it's founder Michael Fenne. "Fenne, it turned out, was a convicted con artist who had bilked the townspeople in a small Appalachian town out of their life savings and then fled before paying restitution. Pixelon's remaining management insisted that they had been unaware of Fenne's criminal background and that the company's finances and technology were solid. The Standard's 'The Imposter,' however, found that Pixelon misled investors about its technology, mismanaged millions of dollars in capital and actively covered up doubts about the true identity of its founder."
