Is anyone going to Perens' presentation this Friday? It would be very

additional details if you are not familiar with this event.

Infoworld reports that open source definition author and open source

("DMCA") this upcoming Friday. Perens will demonstrate how to circumvent

presentation will take place on Friday afternoon at the O'Reilly Open
Source Convention in San Diego. When Russian programmer Dmitry Sklyarov
