Structure 08 Update: Level 3 CEO Jim Crowe to Keynote

Structure 08It’s been awhile since I’ve provided an update on our upcoming conference, Structure 08, which will be held at San Francisco’s Mission Bay Center on June 25. We’ve been busily adding speakers and further finessing the agenda to address some of today’s biggest technology themes — such as cloud computing — and their impact on the web infrastructure.

Today I am very excited to announce that Jim Crowe, chairman and CEO of Level 3 Communications, will deliver a keynote speech at the conference. He joins our two other stellar keynote speakers: Werner Vogels, CTO of, and Sun Microsystems’ CTO Greg Papadopoulos.

Taken together, the three of them will present a holistic view of the web infrastructure, its challenges and, most importantly, its opportunities. Crowe can offer a view of the web from a bandwidth perspective, Papadopoulos can address the challenges from a hardware perspective, while Vogels can provide the context as to why cloud computing is the obvious way forward for the tech industry. We will be announcing more speakers and a full schedule for Structure 08 over the next week or so. In the meantime, here’s how you can sign up.
