I’m preparing for some fascinating conversations. The schedule is still fluid but as of today here’s who I’ll be talking to on stage. They’re in the order that I’m talking to them:
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee
Ron Conway, David Lee and Brian Pokorny from SV Angel
Doug Leone from Sequoia Capital and Sanjit Biswas from Meraki
Reid Hoffman and David Sze from Greylock Partners
John Doerr/Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
Vinod Khosla/Khosla Ventures
I’ve interviewed almost all of these people before and I’m sure they’ll have fascinating things to say. I expect Benioff to be the most likely to say something outrageous.
Mayer will get at least a little razzing about the Vogue Magazine thing – Personally I think she should do the interview in the same pose as the picture. Probably won’t happen, though.
Wrapping the conference up with a talk with Zuckerberg will definitely be a win. Hopefully it’ll be as newsworthy and interesting as our talk a year ago.
