AllThingsD announced today that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook would be opening their D: All Things Digital conference this year. Cook will open the conference with a keynote on the evening of Tuesday, May 29th. This will be Cook’s first appearance at the conference and he will be accompanied by many other well-known names in the industry, including Michael Bloomberg (mayor of New York City), Dr. Ed Catmull (president of Walt Disney and Pixar), Mark Pincus (founder of Zynga), and more.
As you very well may know, Steve Jobs appeared at D multiple times, one of the most notable being the shared session with Bill Gates at D5 in 2007. His final appearance was D8 in 2010 when he answered questions on Adobe Flash and the iPad, Foxconn suicides, the next iPhone, Apple’s acquisition of Siri, user privacy, and much more.
