Microsoft Announces Surface 2.0 Event In New York City On September 23

And so it begins.

The San Francisco Design Center is filling with investors, entrepreneurs, members of the media and general tech enthusiasts as the first day of TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2013 officially kicks off.

We’ve got a star-studded show for you Monday, including an interview between myself and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, and a fireside chat with Ron Conway, David Lee and Brian Pokorny.

Plus, later in the day, we’ll be hearing from LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner and Twitter CEO Dick Costolo.

Then, it’s Battlefield time. 30 companies will hop on our stage with six minutes to impress a panel of incredible judges, including Marissa Mayer, Tracy Chou, Megan Quinn, and Sam Yagan to name a few.

We’ll be bringing all of this and more to you live all day long, so be sure to check in to the live stream as much as possible to watch the drama unfold.

Happy Day One, everybody!
