"On Monday, October 16, a merry band of Penguinistas and BSD aficionados frolicked in the rain outside the Digital Dividends Conference organized by the World Resources Institute, at Seattle's Bell Harbor International Conference Center."

"Demonstrators first swapped mountain climbing stories and tech tips with Seattle Police in attendance, then opened doors for conference attendees while attempting to present them with magazines and CDs, and to inform them of Open Source alternatives which could present good solutions for some Third World problems."

"The demonstration was called in response to reports on Techweb.com that Linux companies had been excluded. Subsequent correspondence between demonstration organizer Tim Hanson and Conference officials revealed that Red Hat officials had been invited, though as attendees rather than presenters, but had declined. No other major Linux vendors had been invited."
