Day two of the Web Summit saw some of the biggest names in tech take to the main stage again including Elon Musk, the last minute and most welcome addition to the event.
The day greeted Google Ventures, Kevin Rose to the stage yet again as well as Leonard Kleinrock continuing his discussion on the internet and how something he fathered has grown.
David Carr of the New York Times and Shane Smith of Vice made a point of discussing new media on the main stage and how Vice has become what it is today.
The highlight of the entire event however was Elon Musk taking to the stage alongside Enda Kenny and explaining that the key to success could come from free education, with Kenny making the point that Tesla motors should make their way to Ireland.
For those that don’t know, Elon Musk is the billionaire behind Paypal, SpaceX as well as Tesla motors and the man has visions of a “hyperloop”; an incredibly fast way of getting from one side of the United States to the other, in a system that’s somewhat reminiscent of Futuramas air tubes in New New York.
If the Dublin Web Summit showcases anything, it’s that technology and ideas are constantly flowing, and that through networking opportunities like this, we may see great leaps in numerous industries within months.
Also having a consistently working Wi-Fi connection as a tech conference is a must.
