Armed protester halts WebEx meeting


I find this one hard to believe, but Stephanie Downs at ConferZone reports that the day her presentation was scheduled at the WebEx User Conference in San Francisco, organizers had to cancel because "a protestor with guns was outside the event and was consequently arrested Monday night."

I never thought of WebEx as being particularly controversial--definitely not something to inspire this kind of yahoo behavior. Wonder what his gig was all about? As for Stephanie, well, she sounds pretty calm about it, and even jokes, "Maybe next year they could rent a private island to avoid problems in the future. I am sure the other attendees would be all for it...what do you think?"
