Gillmor Gang Live 07.13.12 (TCTV)

The lore is that news doesn’t really break at Allen and Co’s Sun Valley mogul retreat, but it definitely gets made. Everywhere you look there’s an interesting pairing of successful individuals hanging out, which is what you’d assume would happen at a convergence of hundreds of the most powerful media, entertainment and technology elite.

A conversation here can often turn into tomorrow’s front page headline or top Techmeme hit. From Sheryl and Sergey taking a stroll, to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie chilling post bar with Activision’s Bobby Kotick to Peter Thiel and Palantir’s Alex Karp grabbing a coffee between panels at the lodge, one finds themselves in a constant state of wanting to find out about what everyone’s talking about.

Because everyone is here: From Yousef Al Otaiba to Mark Zuckerberg, the guest list is 624 machers strong, and we have it — minus a few no-shows like Groupon’s Andrew Mason. Btw. The Idaho State Governor is named Butch Otter. Really.
