Making his first appearance on the D stage is Ben Silbermann, who heads the online scrapbook phenomenon Pinterest, one of the most explosive startups on the scene recently. Despite its recent huge valuation, Pinterest has a heft and influence in tech and beyond that few other such companies can claim. Silbermann grew up in Iowa, where he says he spent a lot of time collecting bugs. Unlike many attention-seeking entrepreneurs, he has quietly pushed his young company to the forefront of e-commerce and ´┐╝other key digital arenas by creating a unique and elegant way for people to share inter- ests of all kinds. Before Pinterest, Silbermann worked at Google on AdSense.
