In preparing to this year’s Web 2.0 Summit program, we have cast a good sized net to bring in the industry leaders that are pioneering some of the most important innovations — at the chokepoints on the Internet economy landscape. Featured conversations in this year’s program center around some of these key points of control:

Day One – November 15, 2010

  • Commerce – A conversation between Scott Thompson (PayPal), Jack Dorsey (Square), and Michael Rubin (GSI Commerce)
  • Consumer Platforms – Discussing the convergence of operations, marketing, product and audience development, a diverse panel featuring Nikesh Arora (Google), John Hayes (American Express), and Yusuf Mehdi (Microsoft)

Day Two – November 16, 2010

  • Managing Hypergrowth – Susan Lyne (Gilt Group), Tony Hseih (Zappos.com), and Richard Rosenblatt (Demand Media), Inc. give an insider’s look at the innovative touches needed to manage hypergrowth on a global scale.

Here is some bonus footage of Rosenblatt, as part of a panel discussion at last year’s Web 2.0 Summit, discussing the future of content delivery with John Battelle, Dan Rosensweig, and Peter Guber:

We’ll provide more of these at-a-glance spotlights on the Web 2.0 Summit program between now and when the conference kicks off on November 15. We hope that you can join us. Attendance is by invitation only. Be sure to request yours today.
