O'Reilly Reveals ETech 2009 Program at Web 2.0 Summit

Sebastopol, CA, November 6, 2008—Registration has opened for ETech, the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, scheduled for March 9-12 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California. Conference chair Brady Forrest has unveiled the program, which explores the technology of abundance and constraints to discover ideas that matter.

ETech is O'Reilly Media's flagship "O'Reilly Radar" event. Since 2002, ETech has put onstage ideas for radical innovation, bringing to light the disruptive yet important innovations that we see on the horizon, rather than the ones that have already arrived.

Among the participants expected to explore the future at ETech are hackers, grass roots developers, researchers, strategists, makers, thought leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, business developers, venture capitalists, city planners, medical professionals, life scientists, CxOs and IT managers, doers, and other technical visionaries.

New speakers and sessions join the program daily. Featured speakers include:
