“EarthWeb…announced today that IBM…has become a platinum

Source Software conference and exhibition in New York City
beginning on December 14, 1999. The Bazaar is designed to be a
comprehensive forum featuring over 30 hands-on workshops, more than
50 conference sessions, featured keynote and panel presentations by
the leaders of the Open Source movement
, and over 45,000
square feet of vendor and project exhibits at the Javits Convention

“For the $50 per person conference cost, The Bazaar can take the
mystery out of the free software landscape,” said Michael Healy,

software fits into their technology strategy.”
