Web 2.0 Expo New York Keynote Speakers

Jay Adelson Jay Adelson (digg)
Jay Adelson was suckered out of the world of film and broadcasting into helping kick-start the Internet industry in 1993. Since then, he helped engineer Netcom, the first ISP in the United States, worked at DEC research lab in Palo Alto to build the secret back-end of the Internet (PAIX), and founded the billion-dollar Equinix [EQIX] which, if shut off, would screw up the Internet.

Marc Benioff Marc Benioff (Salesforce.com)
Marc Benioff is chairman and CEO of salesforce.com. He founded the company in 1999 with a vision to create an on-demand information management service that would replace traditional enterprise software technology. Benioff is regarded as the leader of what he has termed "The End of Software," the now-proven belief that multi-tenant, on-demand applications democratize information by delivering immediate benefits at reduced risks and costs.

Irene Greif Irene Greif (IBM)
Irene Greif heads the Collaborative User Experience Group (CUE), a team of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) researchers located in Cambridge, MA. The group has historically worked most closely with Lotus product teams on collaboration software.

Dan Lyons Dan Lyons (Newsweek)
For over a year, the true identity of Fake Steve Jobs was the Internet’s best-kept secret. The business world and Silicon Valley were buzzing with speculation and rumour, even parlour games: who, exactly, was behind "The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs," the scathingly hilarious, deceptively insightful, and wildly popular blog “written” by Apple's genius CEO?

Tim O'Reilly Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media)
Tim O’Reilly is the founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, Inc., thought by many to be the best computer book publisher in the world. O’Reilly Media also publishes online through the O’Reilly Network and hosts conferences on technology topics, including the O’Reilly Open Source Convention, the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, and the Web 2.0 Conference. Tim’s blog, the O’Reilly Radar “watches the alpha geeks” to determine emerging technology trends, and serves as a platform for advocacy about issues of importance to the technical community. Tim is on the boards of MySQL, CollabNet, Safari Books Online, Wesabe, and ValuesOfN, and is a partner in O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures.

Clay Shirky Clay Shirky
Mr. Shirky divides his time between consulting, teaching, and writing on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies. His consulting practice is focused on the rise of decentralized technologies such as peer-to-peer, web services, and wireless networks that provide alternatives to the wired client/server infrastructure that characterizes the Web. Current clients include Nokia, GBN, the Library of Congress, the Highlands Forum, the Markle Foundation, and the BBC.
