Internet World At 10 o'clock the doors at Internet World 2001 opened
with scores of people eager to get their first peek at
the companies on show. A minute later and this hack
was witness to the show's first argument.

Chap in suit (annoyed): "Look I registered online, why
do I have to fill out a registration card?

Security: "Sir, you have to fill out this card."

Chap in suit (more annoyed): "Yes but look, I already
registered online. My details are already in the
system."

Security: "You'll have to fill out this registration
card if you want to get in."

Chap in suit (well and truly pissed of): "But I've
already done it. Online. Look, here's my email.

Security: You'll have to fill out this card."

And so the opening minutes of this trade show
dedicated to the power of the Internet is thrown into
dispute because of an administrative cock-up.

It's heartening to see that in this age of technology
paper is still king. ®
