Gates and Jobs to make history

leave a comment »

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs will, for the first time ever, appear onstage together for an unrehearsed conversation. As part of the fifth annual D conference (D5) to be held in May in San Diego. D is an all-executive technology and new media conference held by the Wall Street Journal. The conference is produced by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher who are both technology writers for the WSJ.

Interesting fact about the conference: It features all interviews, and doesn’t have scripted speeches that are common for most conferences.

Both Gates and Jobs have attended the conference in the past, but this will be first time they will appear together at D, a fairly rare occurrence. Steve Jobs will also be appearing in an individual session to discuss new Apple projects, while Steve Ballmer will be discussing Microsoft’s current ventures.

Also attending D5 are George Lucas, Steve and Chad from YouTube, AOL co-founder Steve Case, and Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google (speaking of Eric Schmidt, check out my post on his business-card typo here.)
