Supernova 2003 will be held July 8-9 in the Washington, DC area. If you’re reading this blog, you probably caught some of the buzz from Supernova 2002 in December. The 2003 event promises to be even better. Already, our confirmed speaker list includes:

* Reed Hundt (former FCC Chairman)
* Jonathan Schwartz (EVP of Software, Sun Microsystems)
* Joichi Ito (CEO, Neoteny Co. Ltd., Japan)
* Kevin Lynch (Chief Software Architect, Macromedia)
* Bruce Mehlman (Asst. Secretary of Commerce for Tech Policy)
* Craig Donato (CEO, Grand Central Networks)
* Clay Shirky (author and consultant)

We’re holding this one in DC, the belly of the beast, to bring together the technology, business, and government communities. Such conversations are increasingly important as legal and policy issues ripple through the tech world.

I hope you can join us in July. Registration materials will be available in the next few weeks.
