Internet Evolution Welcomes Esther Dyson to IE Radio, 1 pm ET

Tech investor and former ICANN chairman to discuss Web 2.0's applicability to business, Internet anonymity, and space travel, among other topics

Aug 21, 2009

Venture capitalist and former ICANN chairman Esther Dyson is today's guest on Internet Evolution Radio, where she'll discuss market trends that affect how businesses use and manage Web 2.0 technologies.

As a seasoned entrepreneur who's helped launch Flickr, Delicious, MeetUp, and other companies, Dyson also blogs for the Huffington Post and trained to be a cosmonaut this past spring. "As an investor, former Internet administrator, and shrewd industry observer, Dyson's well equipped to forecast the impact of Web 2.0 on both business and individuals," says Terry Sweeney, editor in chief of Internet Evolution.
