Finally! An Announcement!
On Oct. 16 - 18 in Seattle, the "Creating Digital Dividends" Conference will be hosted by the World Resources Institute. It's purpose is to bridge the technology gap between First and Third World countries. It is sponsored by 3Com, Compaq, Ericsson, HP, iGeneration, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Weyerhaeuser, Worldcom, and RealNetworks. Its media sponsor will be Business Week.
The Institute has not yet seen fit to include the only companies which market products and services many in the Third World can actually afford, the Linux companies.
This is your chance to make a little noise, promote Linux, and have a good time, too! If you'll be in Seattle on Monday, October 16, 2000 come down and hobnob with the rich and famous, and give them a few CDs.
