What 9 Tech Big Shots Said at D9

Some of the industry's biggest players, from from venture capitalists to chief executives, got together to talk shop. Here's what they said.

The D9 conference, hosted by the Wall Street Journal's All Things D crew, is running this week in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. As befitting the WSJ, the lineup features a flock of heavy hitting executives from Google's Eric Schmidt to venture capitalist Marc Andreessen to Nokia's Stephen Elop.

The value of these on-stage interviews isn't so much what you learn about a company's financials but what you learn about how their leaders think, or as Tim O'Reilly put it, "My favorite thing about #D9 is the insight it gives into the character of tech leaders. It's less what they say, more how they say it." In that vein, we give you nine quotes from the big shots at the conference.
