*Event Description:*

Peer production is about more than sitting down and having a nice
conversation... It's about harnessing a new mode of production to take
innovation and wealth creation to new levels." -- Eric Schmidt, CEO Google.

Wikipedia does it. So does Yelp, Amazon and Digg. Millions of customers have
eagerly helped to build up reviews, ratings and other content for the most
popular sites on the web. CEOs, founders and VCs talk up the growing number
of opportunities in crowdsourcing and answer questions such as: How can you
get your customers to work for you? What rewards do they need? How do you
deal with the issue of accuracy and reliability of the information? What are
the trials and tribulations of crowdsourcing? Who's making money and what
are the business models?

Come join us to find out about the next wave of customer driven companies
and see how entrepreneurs are letting customers take charge in order to help
change the world.
