Vanity Fair Comes to San Francisco to Quiz the New Establishment at New Confab

What do Bob Iger, Jonathan Ive, Evan Spiegel and Sophia Amoruso have in common?

On the 20th anniversary of Vanity Fair’s ranking of digital and media powers-that-be, the Condé Nast magazine is launching its first “New Establishment Summit,” which it is titling “The Age of Innovation.” The event will take place Oct. 8 and 9 in San Francisco, in association with the Aspen Institute. Among the speakers onstage: Apple design guru Jonathan Ive, California attorney general Kamala Harris, Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, an unlikely pairing of Michael Bloomberg and Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel (or maybe not!), Disney’s Bob Iger, Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso, and more. (Full disclosure: Walt Mossberg and I have been on the list, and Peter Kafka has written some of its profiles; in addition, I write freelance articles for VF, and will also do an interview at the event.)
