Day Two of the Code Conference will be getting under way later today, but the festivities kicked off last night, with appearances by Snapchat founder and CEO Evan Spiegel and liberal provocateur and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Here’s what went down:
- Evan Spiegel has a lot of thoughts, which you can grab in their totality from our liveblog of his appearance onstage. Among other things, he thinks there’s definitely a tech bubble (with an inevitable slowdown on its way) and he apologized again for those nasty emails he sent in college. Spiegel further hinted that soon you won’t need to keep your finger on Snapchat videos to keep watching.
- Elizabeth Warren, progressive and metaphorical bomb-thrower in the U.S. Senate, also had a bunch to say. She’s still mad as hell about the big banks’ influence in Washington, but she seems pretty okay with the Uber-ized workforce of tomorrow — so long as the government spends more on long-term needs like infrastructure and education. Check out our liveblog of her talk for more details.
- You might’ve heard that Re/code was acquired by Vox Media today. Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff took the stage for a bit to talk about what that means, and why he bought our rogues’ gallery.
Stay tuned for more coverage of our speakers today, who include folks from Apple, Airbnb, BuzzFeed, CBS, Kleiner Perkins and more.
