August 12, 2009
August 12, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Mary Meeker, managing director of Morgan Stanley and 1981 graduate of DePauw University, will be among the featured speakers at Web 2.0 2009. The event, with a theme of "Web Squared," will take place October 20-22 in San Francisco.
"We believe that nothing is going to get better if the world collectively hides under its desk," notes the conference's Web site. "It's time for the Web to step up and step into its role as a platform for positive change-be it in our economy, our culture, or our society. Last year we focused on where the Web met the world. This year, the Web is the world. And we've got a lot of work to do."
