Microsoft and Cisco Systems have refused to attend the event, while Google and Yahoo are non-committal, officials said.

    I hope Google and Yahoo attend, the bad press will go to MSFT and Cisco for not. I would like to see them answer questions. If not, could someone please point me to a decent search engine to use that is not caving in to repressive regimes.
