It’s a good time to be a nerd. The “nerd economy,” as we’re now calling it, is slowly but surely paving the way for geeks and nerds and nerd-geeks to someday rule the world. At long last. For me, it can’t come fast enough.
Until that day comes, nerds will certainly rule at next week’s Disrupt SF event. Not only will Facebook’s very own Mark Zuckerberg be there, but many, many more incredibly wonderful and influential speakers will be as well. For starters: Jack Dorsey, Michael Arrington, Reid Hoffman, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Marissa Mayer, Vinod Khosla, Ron Conway, Dave Morin, Jessica Alba, Marc Benioff, John Borthwick, Tony Conrad, Ben Horowitz, and tons more. You can view the whole speaker list here, as well as our updated agenda on the Disrupt site. It’s going to be an amazing event.
Luckily for all of you who have been unable to purchase a ticket, we’ve partnered with a nerdy disruptor in their own right, New Relic, to offer all of you ONE LAST CHANCE to attend Disrupt SF for free and snag an invite to their awesome after party on the first night of Disrupt.
