Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle are on stage now with the formal intro. Great setting, two big screens on both sides of the main stage - which is a nice emerald green design with huge golden lights above. Big crowd (of course). It's been a hectic day and a lot of (literal) buzz around.
Tim and John talk about "innovation in display" and assembly; a lot of companies will show that here. The conference will show what companies are doing with the web platform, talking to a lot of platform leaders. Issues that will be addressed: open vs closed, data models, future of entertainment, young users just coming to the platform.
