Steve Gillmor, editor of TechCrunchIT, producer of the Gillmor Gang and one of the technology industry’s most well-known and pervasive commentators and pundits, will present a keynote address on the client-side web revolution at the Kynetx Impact Conference in Salt Lake City, April 27-28, 2010. Since the premiere Impact Conference last November, Kynetx developers have created more than 900 client-side and platform-independent applications, with many more entering the market in the balance of 2010. The Kynetx platform helps developers create applications that span multiple URLs and devices in response to user context, giving users more control of their web experience.
