This is the sign in front of the conference hall, with a picture adapted
from the first Kermit book, and the flying frog taken from the rubber stamp
that the "Kermites" liked to put on outgoing mail. Kermit protocol and
software was named after Kermit the Frog; the name used by permission of
Henson Associates Inc, but we did not have permission to use images of
Kermit the Frog or other Muppets Show characters, but some found it
difficult to avoid the use of occasional frog imagery.
