At the 2004 Web 2.0 Conference, we gathered to discuss the implications of the Web becoming a platform.

In 2005 we took Web 2.0 further, focusing not just on declaring the platform, but showing where the innovation is happening and what we might expect in the coming year.

We assembled a select group of thought leaders and innovators to explore the theme--"Revving The Web"-- focusing on the services, applications, businesses, and models that are reshaping the Internet, particularly for media and entertainment, communications and mobile, policies and legal issues, and the concept of the web OS.

Web 2.0 was three extraordinary days of discussion, debate, announcements, and fun. Web 2.0 speakers included executives and entrepreneurs from internet giants and the innovative companies that are transforming the way we do business, such as:

Bram Cohen, BitTorrent

Tim O'Reilly, O'Reilly Media, Inc.

Vinod Khosla, Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft, Inc.

Joe Kraus, JotSpot

Stewart Butterfield, Yahoo! Inc.

About The Conference

Only the Web 2.0 Conference brings the intelligence, innovation, and leadership of the internet industry together in one place at one time. You'll learn what business models are working, what's next on the horizon, and how all of this will affect your own business.

We've built in plenty of time for catching up with old friends and making new acquaintances, and for connecting with the leaders and technologists redefining the Web's business opportunities.

Once again we'll be limiting attendance to maintain an intimate setting and foster dialogue among all participants.

Request an invitation now, and come be a part of the conversation.
