[ossig] FOSSCON2003 international press coverage



FOSSCON2003 got some international coverage.  Seems like
the word 'strategic' makes people take things seriously.



All roughly the same article though, seems Bernama is
the source, then CNETAsia took it up and the rest got it
from there.

Shame there was almost no local coverage of FOSSCON2003.  Perhaps
the Star Tech Central reporters were told that covering a
foreign software company's jolly brings in more dollars for
the newspaper than reporting on what the multimedia minister says?
