Supernova speakers

I’m excited about the speakers we’ve added to the “Supernova” lineup recently.

For example, Merrill Brown, former editor-in-chief of, runs the RealOne subscription service at RealNetworks, which has nearly a million paying customers for streaming media content. Sriram Viswanathan oversees Intel Capital’s $150 million investment fund for emerging wireless technologies. Blair Levin is a top-rated telecommunications analyst for Legg Mason, and former FCC Chief of Staff. Louis Holder is EVP of product development for Vonage, which is making huge waves with its voice-over-IP service. And Mena Trott is the co-founder and CEO of Six Apart, creators of the popular MoveableType Weblog software. They join an extraordinary list including Clay Shirky, Reed Hundt, Jonathan Schwartz, David Isenberg, Joi Ito, and Cory Doctorow.

All of these people have two things in common: They are doing significant, innovative work and they are compelling in person. They will all be in the same room at “Supernova” on July 8-9 in Washington, DC. I hope you will too.
