Erik Martin, General Manager
Reddit is the "front page of the internet" famously serving upwards of 2 billion pages a month. Over 35 million "redditors" contribute links, images, memes, self-posts and more … and then up-vote them up into internet fame or down-vote them into obscurity.  Erik Martin, one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" according to Time Magazine, oversees this highly active community and is widely known for helping Reddit organize opposition to proposed SOPA and PIPA antipiracy laws earlier this year.  He will be discussing reddit community projects that keep him up at night. // @reddit

Di-Ann Eisnor, VP Platform & Partnerships
Waze is a social traffic & navigation app based on the world's largest community of drivers sharing real time road info and contributing to the “common good” out there on the road. By simply driving around with Waze open, users passively contribute traffic and other road data. Users can take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a 'heads-up' about what's to come– and because it’s 100% user-generated, the more people who use Waze, the better (and more fun) it gets! Also, Waze is shooting to save its community time AND money with its new fuel program to help our community of 20 million drivers worldwide find their best gas station options and real-time prices. // @waze
