Defining the New Network

Supernova 2007 will explore how the new Internet platform will impact business and society in the immediate future. Questions we'll ask include:
  • Why do architects of today's Internet think it needs a radical overhaul... and are they correct?
  • Is most of the Internet economy actually hidden in grey and black markets?
  • Why are the executives who defined Microsoft's and IBM's Internet strategies now advocating such shocking ideas?
  • Is marketing a dirty word in a relationship economy? Can that change?
  • What future challenges are Google's top advertising and search execs (both coming) focused on?
  • Do you know where your online identity is?
  • What do leading business thinkers envision for the startup, the firm, and the enterprise?
  • Who's right: the top web 2.0 blogger, the leading web 2.0 investor, or the most prominent web 2.0 skeptics? (We've got them all.)
See our sessions and Challenge Day agenda for more details.
