It was mentioned (under "2001") that "Algebraic & Geometric Topology" was born from the resigned board of "Topology and its Applications". This is not correct. AGT was born by splitting off from "Geometry & Topology". The resignation of the board of "Topology and its Applications" may have occurred at the same time, may have involved people on the board of AGT, and may have involved the same ethos that moved the founders of GT and AGT, but otherwise the two events are not connected. This can be verified by contacting any of several people involved with those events, like Rob Kirby (rckirby@math.berkeley.edu), Colin Rourke (gt@msp.warwick.ac.uk), etc.
