Protesters Outside of the Fortune Brainstorm Tech Con

No, this is not Seth Rogan. This is an AT&T worker, one of 40 from all over California protesting their CEO Randall Stevenson who was speaking at the conference. According to the protesters Stevenson has yet to sign their contract, they’ve been working without one for the past 90 days.

Inside the conference, Stevenson admitted to being an avid Amazon-owned Kindle user and relayed, “there will be a day when [we're] not exclusive with Apple.”

The CEO pronounces it “con-nectivity” which is what we will grumble the next time we write him a check.

There were two questions asking the executive about the horrible coverage. Each time Stevenson said that they were “aggressively working on the problem.”

There were no questions about the protesters just outside the resort’s walls.
