Only a Few Tickets Left for Monday’s Future of Search Event

11/25/09Follow @gthuang

Going… going… I can count on one hand the number of tickets left for our Monday, Nov. 30 event on The Future of Search and Information Discovery at the UW. Other than the fact that it conflicts with the titanic Monday Night Football game between the Patriots and Saints, it should be a great night.

By now, you know we’ll have a panel discussion featuring Brian Bershad from Google; Harry Shum from Microsoft (Bing); Oren Etzioni from UW and Madrona Venture Group; Steve Hall from Vulcan Capital; and the UW’s Ed Lazowska moderating as only Ed Lazowska can.

That will be followed by startup “bursts”—quick presentations from entrepreneurs Will Hunsinger from Evri; T.A. McCann from Gist; Andrew Kasarskis from Sage Bionetworks; Rand Fishkin from SEOmoz; and Rishab Ghosh from Topsy.

What are the real opportunities in real-time search, social media information discovery, vertical search and ads, and location-based search and marketing? What are the big players doing to stay ahead of the curve? What will the landscape of Web search look like 10 years from now? We look forward to finding out all this, and more, on Monday night.
