I can't help but think of what Eben talked about this morning, that 
Freedom and Transparency in all things is important. I'm not intending 
to single out this conference, or the catering provided. But along the 
lines of what Tabitha and Jim mentioned in this thread, it's a problem 
across the entire food industry and it behooves us as Freedom and 
Transparency technology advocates to encourage those who prepare the 
food we eat (among the many many other items in our society) to be Free 
and Transparent as well.

Although I posted originally in jest, I'm still amused from a 
social-hacking perspective that my attempt to receive as much bacon as 
possible has been converted (presumably due to a misunderstanding of my 
intention without checking) as a request for no bacon whatsoever.

Ah well, as long as I don't miss out on any potential bacon at the 
Penguin Dinner, I'm sure I'll survive ;)
