    Originally I intended to come, but now am not doing so out of protest to the sell-out who’s just become CEO of a certain newspaper and is going to be a “Headline” speaker in this event.

    He knows who he is.

  2. matkilat: Don’t be so judmental, and BUMmers cometh from a wide spectrum of opinion-makers, dreamers and doers. So what’s one man’s barrier when the occasion is spearheaded by a whole team, and the speakers range from politicians and civil society activists to professionals like lawyers and MSM and new media practitioners.
    Well, it’s a free world, your choice, but I thought after two previous BUM outings, Bloggers and Bloggers2B should be more open-minded — come for the clash of ideas, and there’s both feasting of the mind and body. Let’s leave the soul out for another forum…? ~~ YL, Desi
