Accessing the Inaccessible: Evolving Search

Monday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom D
531 E 4th St

Not so long ago, when you needed an answer, you turned to people—you called them, you met in person, you asked around. In twenty short years, search engines have become the first stop. Humanity has taken a backseat to algorithms. Search is taken for granted. There’s been iteration and operational improvements, but there has not been a significant challenge to the established pattern of seeking information—there has not been a fundamentally new approach in two decades. Join Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter, Medium, and Jelly) and Danny Sullivan (author, founder of Search Engine Land) as they challenge established patterns, networks, and unlock the value of combining humanity with technology.
