May 15, 2007
The first day of the conference will consist of plenary sessions with big thinkers in the Internet field including Esther Dyson and the authors of The Cluetrain Manifesto, among others.
During the evening of the 15th, we will be holding a cocktail reception for attendees which will include a keynote address.
May 16, 2007
The second day of the conference will consist of more intimate break-out sessions led by specialists in certain areas including security, censorship, intellectual property, and innovation. The purpose of these breakouts will be to address the specific issues facing the Internet over the next ten years and how we can address them to preserve the values upon which the Web was founded. There will be four concurrent tracks with plenary sessions at the beginning and end of the day.
