Well, I noticed that the executive director of the FSF was there in
normal clothing, and the director of FSF Europe, too.
The FSF does not approve of the way that conference was run, and
therefore did not participate. Brad went as an individual, to meet
other attendees. It does not indicate any support from the FSF
for the conference practices.
The biggest news story from the conference was an announcement by
Microsoft, about software that is not free and not even open source.

The next conference, in Europe, is to be called "free software and
open source" I am told. That's a satisfactory handling of that issue.
But I don't think I should participate if Microsoft will be invited to
do anything other than participate in an explicitly adversarial
