Revolution’s Steve Case, Twitter’s Anthony Noto and Evan McMullin are coming to Code

We’re starting very soon. See you there.

Peter Kafka covers media and technology, and their intersection, at Vox. Many of his stories can be found in his Kafka on Media newsletter, and he also hosts the Recode Media podcast.

We’ve been telling you about the jam-packed Code 2017 agenda for several months, but now we’re coming to a close.

That’s because Code starts in less than a week — on Tuesday, May 30, in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., — and also because we’ve got one last group of speakers to tell you about.

Code features candid, unscripted conversations with some of the world’s most interesting and influential people. So these guys will fit right in:

Steve Case helped create the consumer internet when he co-founded America Online in 1985. Now he’s devoting his time and money to philanthropy, via the Case Foundation, and to startup investing, via his Revolution LLC group. He’s particularly interested in helping entrepreneurs who aren’t based in Silicon Valley.

Anthony Noto got his start on Wall Street as a banker at Goldman Sachs. Now he has his hands full as Twitter’s chief operating officer and chief financial officer: That means he’s in charge of Twitter’s efforts to generate revenue and its efforts to turn around Wall Street’s perception of the company.

Evan McMullin was an unknown Republican congressional staffer until August 2016, when he launched a third-party presidential campaign. Now the former CIA officer runs Stand Up Republic, a nonprofit that wants to “defend the democratic ideals, norms and institutions that have made America the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth.”

Intriguing, right? We thought so, too.

Which is why we’ve asked them to join the New York Times’ Dean Baquet, Playground’s Andy Rubin, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway, Netflix’s Reed Hastings, Kleiner Perkins’ Mary Meeker, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, Time Warner’s Jeff Bewkes, Andreessen Horowitz’s Marc Andreessen, Greylock’s Reid Hoffman, CBS + Viacom’s Shari Redstone, the LA Clippers’ Steve Ballmer, Alphabet’s Ruth Porat, Intel’s Brian Krzanich, Emerson Collective’s Laurene Powell Jobs, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Big list! But we’ve got a big stage, and we’ll pace it out over three days. Can’t wait to start. See you soon.
