SAN CARLOS, CA — August 30, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage unstructured information, today announced that Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief, Wired magazine, will keynote MarkLogic’s Digital Publishing Summit in New York. Anderson recently wrote the cover story for the September issue of Wired magazine titled “The Web is Dead, Long Live the Internet.” The article focuses on a new world where the world wide web is in decline and applications are less about the searching and more about the getting of information. The MarkLogic Digital Publishing Summit will be held on Oct. 28, 2010 at The Plaza Hotel in New York. For more information or to register please visit DPS10.

“Last year’s event drew more than 300 people, and we expect another outstanding showing this year,” said Dave Kellogg, CEO, MarkLogic Corporation. “The MarkLogic Digital Publishing Summit has a reputation for being one of the best media events in New York and we predict this year will continue that tradition. We are pleased to have Wired’s Chris Anderson on hand who recently took a hard look at where the internet is headed in his cover story ‘The Web is Dead, Long Live the Internet.’ The piece couldn’t be more relevant to MarkLogic and where we think the world is headed. We’ll also have other experts on hand to explore the media industry’s dynamic digital innovation and transformation and MarkLogic’s role in helping these organizations on the journey.”
As editor-in-chief of Wired magazine and author of New York Times bestseller “The Long Tail,” Anderson is one of the most knowledgeable, insightful, and articulate voices at the center of the new economy. Anderson is consistently the first to understand new economic directions and provide insight into the business opportunities they represent. He 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, Mr. Anderson explains why free is the future of business and how to thrive through “freeconomics.”
In addition, David Worlock, co-chair of the Outsell Leadership Programs in the U.S. and Europe, will keynote a general session on his latest observations on digital transformation. As he notes on his website, we are entering the second decade of the 21st century and “we are past Web 2.0 and into Web 3+.” What does this mean for the publisher, the author, the consumer? What does it mean for technologists who want to seize the moment and drive innovation into their processes and products? Worlock will answer these questions and more during his session and panel at the event.
