Boing Boing: Web 2.0 Summit line-up announced

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

David Pescovitz writes about the terrific speakers scheduled for Web 2.0 Summit:

Our fearless band manager John Battelle is the co-host, along with Tim O'Reilly, of the Web 2.0 Summit, a huge confab where Internet heavyweights talk big vision. Combined, John and Tim know everyone on the Internet (and their brothers) and so they always line up great talkers. They've just announced the speaker list for this year's Web 2.0, to be held November 5-7 in San Francisco. It's no "insider baseball" Internet conference. Indeed, the big thematic question of Web 2.0 2008 is: "How can we apply the lessons of the Web to the world at large?" Folks like Al Gore, Lance Armstrong, Saul Griffith, Elon Musk, and Michael Pollan will attempt to provide some answers.

O'Reilly Radar: Al Gore Joins Web 2.0 Summit Lineup

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

Tim O'Reilly on the exciting news that Al Gore will join the conversation at Web 2.0 Summit:

As I wrote last month in What Good is Collective Intelligence if it Doesn't Make Us Smarter?, at this year's Web 2.0 Summit, we're focusing on how what we've learned from the web over the past decade can be applied to solve the world's hard problems. That's why I'm really excited to see that John Battelle has persuaded Al Gore to join us.

One of those hard problems that requires all the intelligence we can throw at is global warming. And there's no one who deserves as much credit as Al Gore for getting it on our collective radar. Through persistence, vision, and hard work, and a real mastery of the new tools of global media, he made all of us pay attention. His work has been a textbook demonstration of the power of media to change the way people think.

That's Gore's continuing focus, with his role at Current TV. He's also joined Kleiner Perkins as a partner involved in cleantech investing.

When I first saw Gore talk about climate change at the TED conference in early 2006, everyone wanted to know what we could do about it. People are still struggling to answer that question, but it's clear that technology can play a large role: helping us to monitor and measure the rate of change in crucial environmental variables, creating feedback loops that change behavior at both macro-levels (like carbon markets) and personal levels (like home energy monitoring); creating green data centers and low-power devices; creating new forms of renewable energy generation or storage, new materials that require less energy to create; alternative fuels and vehicles. The list goes on and on. (Reminder: we're looking for innovative "web meets world" startups for the Web 2.0 Summit Launchpad.)

Of course, global warming is far from the only "web meets world" theme that we're exploring. The conference will cover everything from the latest trends on the web (the rediscovery of e-commerce as a business model, cloud computing, social networking, mobile applications, and the inevitable platform wars) to politics, global disease detection, personal genomics, private space industry, and even military infotech. Speakers I'm particularly excited to see, in addition to Vice President Gore, include Tony Hsieh (@zappos, for those of you who see him continually on twitter), Elon Musk (who's got to have the coolest portfolio of investments since retiring from PayPal, with SpaceX, SolarCity, Tesla Motors all under his wing), and Michael Pollan, who's completely changed the way many of us think about food. Check out the confirmed speaker list, but keep in mind that there are more yet to come as John and I firm up the program.

Searchblog: Al Gore Joins the Lineup at Web 2 Summit

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

John Battelle announces a splendid addition to the Web 2.0 Summit:

Those of you following my posts around the theme of this year's Web 2 Summit already know that we're expanding the scope of the conference this year, and asking a core question: How can we apply the lessons of the Web to the world at large? From my post outlining the theme:

As we convene the fifth annual Web 2.0 Summit, our world is fraught with problems that engineers might charitably classify as NP hard—from roiling financial markets to global warming, failing healthcare systems to intractable religious wars. In short, it seems as if many of our most complex systems are reaching their limits.

It strikes us that the Web might teach us new ways to address these limits. From harnessing collective intelligence to a bias toward open systems, the Web's greatest inventions are, at their core, social movements. To that end, we're expanding our program this year to include leaders in the fields of healthcare, genetics, finance, global business, and yes, even politics.

Increasingly, the leaders of the Internet economy are turning their attention to the world outside our industry. And conversely, the best minds of our generation are turning to the Web for solutions. At the fifth annual Web 2.0 Summit, we'll endeavor to bring these groups together.

To my mind, no person better exemplifies the merging of these two worlds than former Vice President (and Nobel laureate) Al Gore, the Chairman of Current TV. Gore and CEO Joel Hyatt started Current as "a new breed of media company that works with its young adult audience to create media that informs, enriches and inspires," by integrating online and offline media, a very Web Meets World endeavor indeed. Readers may recall that Gore recently joined Kleiner Perkins as a partner focused on green issues, as well. And we are very pleased to announce that VP Gore will be joining us at the Web 2 Summit this year.

Others joining VP Gore include Elon Musk, of PayPal, Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX, Larry Brilliant, the head of the Google.org foundation, and Michael Pollan, author of many wonderful books on our relationship to food, including my favorite: The Botany of Desire. The full lineup is truly wonderful, and we're still adding speakers.

Requests for invitations can be found here, this is going to be one special event.

O'Reilly Radar: Suggestions for Web 2.0 Summit Charity Auction?

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

Tim O'Reilly asks for, and suggests a few of his own, ideas for Web 2.0 Summit auction items:

We're looking for suggestions as well as donations. For example, what might O'Reilly donate that would bring a big price for the target charities? For example, how much would you donate to have us organize a mini-foo camp for a company, bringing together cool hackers in the company's area of interest? (But suggestions are best if you have some kind of angle on actually helping to make them happen.)

News Release: First Web 2.0 Summit 'Web Meets World' Auction Benefits Charity; Lance Armstrong to Participate in Live Auction

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

SAN FRANCISCO - July 30, 2008 - TechWeb (formerly CMP) and O'Reilly Media, Inc., co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Summit, announce the Web Meets World Auction at Web 2.0 Summit on the evening of Wednesday, November 5, at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The first Summit auction illustrates this year's theme of applying what we’ve learned from the Web to help solve our world's most pressing limits. Keynote speaker Lance Armstrong, the cancer survivor, seven-time Tour de France winner and founder of the Lance Armstrong Foundation who recently joined with Demand Media to launch LIVESTRONG.COM, will autograph a Trek road bike that will be auctioned off with other priceless items during Web 2.0 Summit’s Web Meets World Auction. All proceeds from the auction will benefit charity. Complete information about the Web Meets World Auction can be found at: http://en.oreilly.com/web2008/public/content/auction.

"In planning for the Web 2.0 Summit event this year, we have been inspired to look beyond our immediate needs and into a space that transforms limits into opportunities," said John Battelle, Web 2.0 Summit's Program Chair. "With that in mind, we’ve asked our speakers, including Lance Armstrong and others, to help us host this auction and provide the Summit community at least one concrete way to support change."

The Web 2.0 Summit team will solicit donations, and donation ideas, from individuals and companies within the community and then choose the 10 most promising and unique offerings to auction after the conference dinner. Lance Armstrong, the seven time Tour de France winner and founder of the Lance Armstrong Foundation and LIVESTRONG.COM, will donate an autographed bicycle that he signs on-stage during his interview with John Battelle. All proceeds from the event will benefit three charities, including WITNESS.org, which uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations.

Members of the Web community can contribute to the success of the Web Meets World auction by joining the Web 2.0 Summit Facebook community and suggest which charities should benefit from the auction and what you would consider a priceless donation. Individuals or companies who would like to offer auction items should email: auction@techweb.com.

Web 2.0 Summit takes place November 5-7, 2008 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The event is produced by partners O'Reilly Media, Inc. and TechWeb and is moderated by John Battelle, Program Chair. Attendance is limited to maintain an intimate setting and foster dialog among participants. General attendee registration is by invitation only; requests for invitations are being accepted through mid-September. Media credentials are also extended by invitation only.

by Maureen Jennings, Conferences Publicist on  

Fourth Edition Launch Pad Addresses the World’s Need for Change

SAN FRANCISCO - July 10, 2008 - TechWeb (formerly CMP) and O’Reilly Media, Inc., co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Summit, today announce the Launch Pad program, a unique public forum designed to uncover the most promising Web startups, is open for submissions. The theme for this fourth edition Launch Pad, Web Meets World, spotlights the industry’s best startups that use the Web’s culture to change the world. For more information on submitting your company or product for this year’s Launch Pad and to complete a submission form, visit: http://en.oreilly.com/web2008/public/content/launchpad. The Web 2.0 Summit takes place November 5-7, 2008 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Launch Pad’s focus will be on startups in the fields of alternative energies, social entrepreneurialism, microfinance, developing economies, political action, renewable technologies, and other innovative areas. Web 2.0 Summit Launch Pad will provide Web 2.0 companies a chance to present in front of six leading venture capitalists from Internet and Green backgrounds, while receiving raw, real-time feedback from both judges and audience members.

“The conversation is no longer just about the Web, rather about the bigger social movements driving the Web’s greatest solutions,” said John Battelle, Web 2.0 Summit’s Program Chair. “We’ve adjusted our Launch Pad to reflect the natural progression of the conversation and, most importantly, to present the Web’s most promising innovations.”

The Web 2.0 Launch Pad’s judging panel of venture capitalists will sponsor the program, thus eliminating company participation fees. Any company in any stage of financing can compete for a slot on stage, whether or not they are launching a new company or product. Judges will select the finalists who will compete at the Web 2.0 Summit event and receive up to ten minutes on stage to present to the entire Web 2.0 Summit audience and the VC judging panel.

“We’re honored to be a part of Web 2.0 Summit’s Launch Pad: Web Meets World. It allows us the unique opportunity to learn about those Web companies working to improve the complex problems facing industries outside the Web- something invaluable for Panorama Capital,” said Chris Albinson of Panorama Capital. “Together with the Web 2.0 Summit’s audience, we’ll uncover those shining stars working to build a better future.”

Submission deadline for Web 2.0 Summit Launch Pad is September 10, 2008. Final determination of the Launch Pad companies will be made by John Battelle, Web 2.0 Summit’s Program Chair, in concert with VC judges including Chris Albinson of Panorama Capital, Vinod Khosla of Khosla Ventures, and Mike Goguen of Sequoia Capital.

Web 2.0 Summit is produced by partners O’Reilly Media, Inc. and TechWeb and is moderated by John Battelle, Program Chair, and O’Reilly CEO Tim O’Reilly. Attendance is limited to maintain an intimate setting and foster dialog among participants. General attendee registration is by invitation only; requests for invitations are being accepted through mid-September. Media credentials will also be extended by invitation only.
