Speakers include co-inventor of the Internet, Vint Cerf, Professor Dame Wendy Hall, Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Mark BernsteinBjørn Borud, and Doc Searls. Vint Cerf says:

I have participated in the Future of Text events and find them thought-provoking and poignant reminders that text is how we communicate with the future.
