Right now, the face of Jerry Yang, Chief Yahoo!, is up on the giant screen here in the ballroom. A few rows back, a gray-haired gentleman snoozes in his chair, occasionally snoring audibly. It's the 2004 version of George Orwell's Big Brother: The Man is up on the screen telling us what to do and we're snoozing instead of touching our toes.
