A conference update from Tim O'Reilly
Conference program has been finalized. There are over fifty sessions in
three tracks, covering everything from file sharing systems to distributed
computation, Web services, and p2p architectures for mobile and embedded
systems. Expect hard-core technical content, as well as a strong business
track, covering business models, market opportunities, and application case
studies for peer-to-peer technologies.
Check out our lineup of more than
speakers and technology innovators, entrepreneurs, and business
including Ray Ozzie of Groove, Ian Clarke of Freenet, Gene Kan of Gnutella,
Johnny Deep of AIMster, Bill Joy of Sun Microsystems, Eric Schmidt of Novell,
Dave Stutz and Christian Huitema of Microsoft, David Anderson of SetiAtHome

We'll also be hearing from industry analysts, venture capitalists, and
journalists, including Professor Larry Lessig of Stanford Law School, Clay
Shirky of the Accelerator Group, Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly & Associates,
Bob Knighten of the Intel Peer to Peer Working Group, Dan Gillmor of the
San Jose Mercury News, Rob 'CmdrTaco' Malda and Jeff 'Hemos' Bates of
Slashdot, and Justin Hibbard of Red Herring.
In addition to the many talks and panels, we're creating space for hallway
conversations and "birds of a feather" sessions where attendees can get
together with peers to discuss issues and opportunities.
The vendor expo will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the foyer
outside the Grand Ballroom.
I hope to see you there.
