This Week: At the D Soiree, With Walt and Kara

@ D: Pre ConferenceLater this week we will be at the sixth edition of the D conference organized by Wall Street Journal, with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. As usual, some big names speaking, including WSJ’s new boss Rupert Murdoch. Other brand names include Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer (together on stage); Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg (also together on stage), Howard Stringer (who was funny as hell at D4), Jeff Bezos, Barry Diller, Jeff Bewkes, Tom Glocer, and then Jerry Yang and Sue Decker (together on stage, which will be a live massacre in action, especially from Kara).

Expect our usual coverage of the sessions, and side interviews, pictures, video and gossip. For coverage from the last two years, and ongoing coverage of D6, read the special section here.
