We’re thrilled to announce that Kara Swisher, executive editor of Re/code, host of the Re/code Decode podcast and co-executive producer of the Code Conference, will be a keynote speaker at Inman Connect New York (ICNY), which takes place January 26 through 29, 2016.
As a major Silicon Valley insider and a highly respected journalist who has interviewed everyone from Bill Gates to Steve Jobs, Swisher has a front row seat to what’s next in tech, and we’re excited that she’ll be sharing her insights with us this January.
Swisher worked in The Wall Street Journal’s San Francisco bureau, where she wrote the column, “BoomTown.” Previously, she covered breaking news about the Web’s major players and Internet policy issues and also wrote feature articles on technology for the paper. She has also written a weekly column for the Personal Journal on home issues called “Home Economics.”
Swisher is also the author of “aol.com: How Steve Case Beat Bill Gates, Nailed the Netheads and Made Millions in the War for the Web,” published by Times Business Books in July 1998. The sequel, “There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere: The AOL Time Warner Debacle and the Quest for a Digital Future,” was published in the fall of 2003 by Crown Business Books.
Swisher joins Seth Godin in what will be a stellar lineup of speakers at Inman Connect’s 20th anniversary event. Learn more about ICNY and register for your ticket here. In the meantime, stay tuned for more exciting speaker announcements in the weeks to come!
