Bing is excited to be part of annual Web 2.0 Summit that kicked off today. This is the annual O’Reilly conference where visionaries and executives across key industries will present their unique perspective on the Web’s future-in-flux and how the tools and principles of Web 2.0 are impacting their businesses. Bing’s presence will be highlighted by Qi Lu’s plenary conversation with Tim O’Reilly, the founder of O’Reilly Media, on Wednesday 10/21. The footage is scheduled to be uploaded to blip.tv later in the week if you want to check it out.
If you’re attending, we want to talk to you! Be sure to drop by the Microsoft Lounge featuring a live-feed from the general session, refreshments and representatives from Bing, Windows 7, IE, Windows Live, BizSpark, as well as industry partners speakTECH and Telligent Systems. Think of it like this – what Bing is to search overload, the lounge is to people overload.
Oh by the way, we’re hosting an invite-only party at Ruby Skye on 10/21 . It’s going to be a blast with food, drinks (21 and over stuff) and DJs and our featured act, Janelle Monáe, Queen of Cybersoul. If you’re in the SF area, we have a few invites to give out. Follow @Bing for details on how you can snag one!
Side note: If you see people wearing a t-shirt stating “Bing Love (TC50 startup)”, that’s us. Be sure to say ‘hi’!
