Sun Valley – a sked of who’s where, when…

July 9, 2008

kingabdullah.jpgThanks to New York Times Andrew Ross Sorkin’s DealBook blog here’s a sked of who’s going to be speaking at this year’s annual media mogul and new media upstart get-together organized by Allen & Company in Idaho’s Sun Valley.

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, IAC/InterActive Corp’s CEO Barry Diller, and Google co-founder Larry Page will be among those speaking today.

Other key names speaking tomorrow include Sir Howard Stringer, chairman of Sony Corp. , Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive of Dreamworks Animation.

As usual there are other super big names who aren’t directly connected to media, including former Microsoft honcho Bill Gates and investor Warren Buffett (NYT points out he is a big shareholder and board member of the Washington Post Company) and Coca Cola CEO Muhtar Kent. The real outsider this year and special guest is His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan (pictured above) - as we pointed out in our earlier blog.

Why is Larry Page here? Is he cutting deals — Should not Eric Schmidt be the one?
And is it Reuters’ style to say His Majesty? Or is this a sarcastic/outdated reference?
