I went to the morning session of the first day of the conference, took notes, and read a lot of nametags. I also have some pictures, which I'll upload shortly. I'm also going to add more of the meaty legal details. I think there's a webcast available somewhere too. Pingswept 20:32, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

"something for which there can never be toleration."[edit]

Hey, great article. I think an improvement would be some explanation to the clause "something for which there can never be toleration." -- sounds interesting but I'm not quite sure what they're getting at? Explanation/example would be good.

As I see it, one important aspect of the FSF is freedom. With digital rights managemant, the freedom to legally copy data will be limited - for example, copying an MP3 bought online to an iPod or similar device is not allowed by some DRM. Further details here (fsf website) -- h2g2bob
Further to this, there's a brief discussion of why on Boing Boing -- h2g2bob

Corporate delegates[edit]

Actually, there were at least four Red Hat employees and three Intel employees there, as well as two from MySQL, two from Hitachi and more. My notes from the event are [on my blog] and you are welcome to use the photo from that page too. Webmink 00:05, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi Simon,
In fact, I was sitting right behind you and Danese. I'll update the article to include your observations. Pingswept 00:39, 17 January 2006 (UTC)


I added Economy and Business category as this involves licensure which is highly important in the business world. I could make a case that this belongs in Politics and Conflicts but I hesitate as this may bloat it's significance. --Sfullenwider 03:38, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

byline template[edit]

Should this have the regular date template on it, or one for the location? --Brian McNeil / talk 23:42, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
