The D8 Site Is Now Live

The conference site for the eighth D: All Things Digital is now up.

There are posts related to D8, and we will be adding more in the next two weeks, ahead of the June 1 start of the conference.

The site also includes D8 speaker pages, which display a bio, big graphic, prior photos and videos. When the conference kicks in, these pages will also be populated with up-to-the-minute posts, photos and videos.

There will also be a Twitter feed module on all the D8 pages, which will show tweets from All Things Digital bloggers and more.

Onstage in interviews with Walt Mossberg and me at the event:

Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs; Hollywood director James Cameron; Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer; AOL (AOL) CEO Tim Armstrong; Steve Burke, COO of Comcast (CMCSA); Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski; Web leader Steve Case; Peter Chou, CEO of HTC; John Donahoe, president and CEO of eBay (EBAY); Paul Jacobs, CEO of Qualcomm (QCOM); Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation SKG; Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford (F); Richard Rosenblatt, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Demand Media, in a session with Editor-in-Chief, President and CEO Paul Steiger of ProPublica; Vivian Schiller, president and CEO of National Public Radio; and, last but hardly least, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
