Scott was constrained in what he could say. When I worked at EK, I was told what I could and could not say when talking to "outsiders". Also, Scott was probably in the process of leaving EK. IDK. I wish him well.
On the contrary, he was very voluable in late 2011 interviews about Kodak and film, though never gave out anything concrete to the media about production figures. We all know what happened in January 2012.
