O’Reilly Media’s invitation-only executive conference returns to San Francisco. From the event website:
“Fifteen years and two recessions into the commercial Internet, it’s clear that our industry has moved into a competitive phase-a “middlegame” in the battle to dominate the Internet Economy. At this year’s Web 2.0 Summit, we’re focusing on these shifting points of control-strategic chokepoints on an increasingly crowded board.
Over 50 leaders and global executives including Julius Genachowski (Chairman, FCC), Ariel Emanuel (CEO, WME Entertainment), Carol Bartz (CEO, Yahoo!), Mark Zuckerberg (CEO, Facebook), Susan Wojcicki (Google), and Robin Li (Chairman & CEO, Baidu) will join us onstage this year.
The Web 2.0 Summit program features companies who are changing strategy and moving into new fields of battle. We’ll map strategic inflection points and identify key players who are battling to control the services and infrastructure of awebsquared world.”
