Mary Meeker, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, "The Internet is the most underutilized advertising medium out there". Mary will be one of the speakers at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco this Oct.
At last year's Web 2.0 Conference, we gathered to discuss the implications of the Web becoming a platform. This year, we're taking Web 2.0 further, focusing not just on declaring the platform, but showing where the innovation is happening and what we might expect in the coming year. We're assembling a select group of thought leaders and innovators to explore this year's theme--"Revving The Web"-- focusing on the services, applications, businesses, and models that are reshaping the Internet, particularly for media and entertainment, communications and mobile, policies and legal issues, and the concept of the web OS.

Most of the software and many of the services are based on the open source model, which means that people contribute to ideas and projects that offer a mutual benefit.
