SAN CARLOS, Calif. — February 11, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, a leading provider of information infrastructure software, today announced that Chris Anderson, bestselling author and editor-in-chief of Wired magazine, will be the keynote speaker at the MarkLogic User Conference 2010 held May 4-6, 2010 at the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco, Calif.
The MarkLogic User Conference is the largest gathering in North America devoted entirely to leveraging information infrastructure software for building cutting-edge applications. The conference is designed for organizations that want to maximize their investment in MarkLogic products and learn about the hottest trends in information applications. Attendees will have opportunities to network with other users, hear real-world case studies, and participate in informative technology and applications sessions.
As editor-in-chief of Wired magazine and author of New York Times bestseller “The Long Tail,” Chris Anderson is one of the most knowledgeable, insightful, and articulate voices at the center of the new economy. Chris is consistently the first to understand new economic directions and provide insight into the business opportunities they represent. With “The Long Tail,” Chris named the rise of the niche as a powerful new force in the economy. He uncovered the reasons why the future of business is selling small quantities of more things to the few people who want them – and how all of those small communities together represent a vast market potential through the efficiencies of digital and Web technology.
Chris has also published “Free: The Past and Future of a Radical Price,” which was originally written as an article for Wired magazine. The book has generated incredible interest, buzz, and debate in the industry. In his research-based presentations, Chris explains why free is the future of business and how to thrive through “freeconomics.”
