Update on Oxfam v. Starbucks

A while back I kind of randomly picked up an item on Oxfam's criticism of Starbucks' opposition to Ethiopia's project to trademark its coffee names. That day my readership doubled (to, like, 12) with all the new hits coming from inside Starbucks. I'm sure they were 6 very important people, because not long thereafter Starbucks CEO Jim Donald met with "African coffee farmers, producers and government officials in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Ethiopia." Oxfam's report of the meeting is here.

thanks for dropping by my blog. I would say disambiguation is probably not good for completing my dissertation! :) I like your postings, I must confess I dont quite "get" all of it though. :)
