This has increasingly dire implications for all Open Source projects, not just OpenBSD. If the U.S. wants to insist that clear, open development of technologies leads to the bad guys getting a leg up on the good guys, we've all taken a big step backwards in how the world works.
Oh, and it's even taken to a backstabbing series of events in getting the hotel cancelled.
If you want to complain to people at UPenn, you have a few venues. The first is The Daily Pennsylvanian , where you can openly write about how the University, founded by Ben Franklin (an American who strongly advocated free speech and open discovery of ideas), is participating in a debacle of events. The second is Mark West , an administrator at UPenn who was partly involved in controlling the POSSE project at UPenn. The third person is Jonathan Smith , who was very crucial in the POSSE/UPenn side of the DAPRA funded project.
If you do write (and you're encouraged to apply some pressure) remember to be clear, extremely professional and courteous, and focused on being a good advocate for OpenBSD and Open Source projects like POSSE. Being childish will only hurt the project and future endeavors.
