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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
