The Web09 speakers programme is now online at http://www.web09.org/event.php. We have managed to add David Karp from www.tumblr.com who will be flying down from New York, US, to attend Web09. We are super-excited to have David, who has just been speaking at the SXSW festival.
We have also added Rod Drury, founder of NZX-listed and global online accounting software company www.xero.com. Rod has kindly accepted an invitation to kick Web09 off in the opening keynote.
Christian Schalk said he could not make it this year and has asked the lovely Pamela Fox from Google to replace him.
Hiroshi wont be able to make Web09 this year.
