SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today InformationWeek announces that Valley View, a new live streamed, monthly web video show produced by UBM TechWeb will feature Ray Lane, Chairman of the Board for HP and Aaron Levie, CEO of Box.net as guests of the premiere event. Hosted by InformationWeek Editorial Director Fritz Nelson and UBM TechWeb Chief Content Officer David Berlind, Valley View will take place at UBM TechWeb San Francisco headquarters December 7, 2011 at 4 pm PST with a studio audience, and will be streamed live online at http://www.informationweek.com/news/specialreport/valleyview.
Ray Lane — a long-time Silicon Valley executive, and partner at Venture Capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers – is also HP's Chairman, where he has overseen a few controversial changes at the top of the technology giant. With the recent appointment of CEO Meg Whitman, and FY 2011 earnings behind HP, Valley View hosts Nelson and Berlind will ask him about what to expect next at HP, and about other hot topics in the valley.
InformationWeek Valley View also spotlights Aaron Levie, the dynamic CEO of Box.net — flush with $81 million in new venture funding, Box.net is trying to create an ecosystem around cloud-based collaboration and content sharing. Levie likes to take shots at Microsoft Sharepoint; he thinks his company has a better enterprise solution. We will talk to him about these hot topics, and how he's planning to invest that massive investment.
Our hosts will also help viewers with their holiday shopping, showing off several new gadgets and toys for the tech-lover. As a special surprise, we'll be giving away some of these new gadgets to a few lucky viewers, so you won't want to miss this.
"We're thrilled to have Ray Lane and Aaron Levie as part of the InformationWeek Valley View premiere," said Fritz Nelson, Editorial Director, InformationWeek. "These influential guests set the tone. No one will want to miss this first episode."
