While I’ve been working on the just-announced Money:Tech conference program for some time, things have really accelerated since formally announcing it earlier this week. I’m seeing great speaker ideas, lots more cool companies, and generally giant levels of enthusiasm for the new conference. Keep the calls and emails coming.
So, who is signed up to speak so far? An eclectic mix of financial hackers, hedge fund managers, entrepreneurs, academics, VCs, and others, all of whom are messing with Wall Street’s status quo.
I’ll be announcing names steadily over the next few weeks, but I’ll start with someone guaranteed to be entertaining, enlightening, and more than a little polarizing: Jim “Mad Money” Cramer. Yes him. I can’t wait.
