Protest fear forces World Bank switch
The World Bank has decided to hold an annual development conference in
cyberspace after protesters threatened to disrupt the event.
The meeting, which was scheduled to take place in Barcelona, is the latest
casualty of the wave of anti-globalisation protests which have swept Europe
and the US in recent years."

Looks as if a cyberspace picket is needed. Remember etoys?
