About Web 2.0 Summit

The Fourth Annual Web 2.0 Summit

Only the Web 2.0 Summit (formerly named Web 2.0 Conference) brings the intelligence, innovation, and leadership of the Internet industry together in one place at one time. The Summit is known for its interactive format, stressing audience interaction and participation. Through incisive plenary sessions, cut-through-the-hype onstage conversations, rapid-fire "high order bits" and "show me" presentations and in-depth workshops, visionaries and executives from Internet businesses will present their unique perspective on the Web's future-in-flux. 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. Web 2.0 Summit is brought to you in partnership with O'Reilly Media, Inc. and TechWeb and moderated by John Battelle, Program Chair, and O'Reilly CEO and founder, Tim O'Reilly.

Attendance at Web 2.0 Summit is limited to maintain an intimate setting and foster dialogue among all participants. Registration is by invitation only.

Discovering the Web's Edge

Web 2.0 Summit focuses on emerging business and technology developments that utilize the Web as a platform and defines how the Web will drive business in the future. What began as a focused gathering on the implications of the Web becoming a platform has transformed into an industry event focused on the latest Internet innovations—the services, applications, businesses, and models—that are redefining the way companies do business and how people live.

In 2004, Web 2.0 focused on one big idea: The Web has become a platform, a foundation upon which thousands of new forms of business would emerge. In 2005, at the second annual Web 2.0 Conference, we focused on the idea of "Revving the Web" - with the platform in place, we highlighted emerging innovations, with a particular emphasis on the entertainment, communications and IT industries. Last year, in 2006, we highlighted the widespread disruptions the web has created in traditional business models and also discussed the opportunities those disruptions created and how that has affected both the giants and the industry as a whole.

Surprising as it may seem, the Web has not infiltrated every industry--yet. So this year, we'll delve into nascent innovation and attempt to parse the only-just-beginning-to-be-discovered territory at the edges of the Web. In 2007, we'll slip past the mainstream and follow instead the road less traveled, the path taken by visionaries and those inspired by forces other than the tried and true. Who are the major players willing to take on new challenges, and the Davids that hold the promise of becoming Goliaths? What Web shortcomings still need to be overcome if we are to truly take the plunge into the next generation--and convince the next generation that we are listening? How can we respond positively to the cultural sea change the Web poses rather than being engulfed by it?

Join us at the fourth annual Web 2.0 Summit, as we journey to the Web's edge and learn to navigate at the boundaries together.

The "Who's Who" of the Internet

Now in its fourth year, Web 2.0 Summit has become the gathering place for business leaders of the new Web - it reflects and embodies the community - bringing together the most influential to discuss and debate the most important issues and strategies driving the Internet economy and what we might expect in the coming year.

What Is Web 2.0?

Defining just what Web 2.0 means still engenders much disagreement. Tim O'Reilly attempts to clarify just what we meant by Web 2.0, digging into what it means to view the Web as a platform and which applications fall squarely under its purview, and which do not. Read more here.
