Google has invited about 400 people for Zeitgeist '05: The Google Partner Forum which will take place on October 25-27. It's the first "customer innovation conference" Google has ever held and many speakers are on the list. Lary Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt will talk at the event but also competitors like Yusuf Mehdi from MSN, Terry Semel from Yahoo, Microsoft blogger Robert Scoble and Barry Diller from IAC.
The traditional press is well in attendance, with James Fallows of the Atlantic Monthly, New Yorker staff writer Malcolm Gladwell, the chairman and publisher of the New York Times Arthur Sulzberger and others. Excellent, can't wait to hear what comes out. Wait a minute! The FAQ says:
All speeches and discussions at Zeitgeist are off the record. To ensure that our presenters and attendees can speak openly, no press coverage or blogging is permitted.
