One invented the World Wide Web and is aiming to rehabilitate his creation. The other is a prize-winning writer and columnist with a global perspective on the future of technology. We are excited to announce the addition of Tim Berners-Lee and Thomas Friedman as keynote speakers at True North 2019.

If you are a techhead like us, Sir Tim Berners-Lee needs no introduction. He invented the World Wide Web, which was the greatest thing in the history of ever, before it got all clogged up with bot traffic and covered in troll comments. Now, Sir Tim is working to fix his amazing machine, and he’s coming to True North to tell us all about his plan.

Thomas Friedman is the winner of three Pulitzer Prizes, he has covered stories from around the globe for The New York Times since 1981. In his latest book, Thank You For Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations, he provides an expansive, yet simple analysis of the stresses and challenges of a world being transformed by technology, globalization and climate change.

Tim and Tom will join journalist, podcaster and Executive Editor of Recode, Kara Swisher in our growing lineup of incredible keynote speakers.

Now is the perfect time to buy your tickets to hear from Kara, Tim and Tom because ticket prices go up Feb. 1.
