Ted Leonsis to Keynote Web 2.0 Conference

Ted Leonsis, Washington Capitals owner and Vice Chairman of America Online, Inc has agreed to be the keynote speaker at New New Internet’s Web 2.0 for Business Conference this November.

Ted doesn’t just give lip service to social media tools like blogging. He lives and breathes Web 2.0. His blog, Ted’s Take, is a perfect example of how blogging should be practiced.

There are many C-level bloggers out there and more joining the conversation everyday. All too often these blogs are simply reworked press releases or stale talking points. The content on Ted’s blog is an honest look inside AOL, the Washington Capitals, or whatever else is on his mind. There’s a steady flow of continuously updated content that’s interesting, honest, and engaging. It’s refreshing to get such a transparent perspective and it’s something that can really only be achieved through blogging.

Here’s Ted on why he started his blog:

“A blog can be entertaining, it can be informational, and it can be enlightening. But the most important part of a blog is that it can be activating. It allows others to look at your thoughts and follow your life and then launch their own ideas, comments and perspectives on what you’ve seen and done.”

That spirit of online collaboration is what makes his blog so popular and why we’re thrilled to have such a social media expert join us for the New New Internet, Web 2.0 for Business Conference.
