Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Dawn McCarty all have something in common:

Steve Jobs wanted to put 1,000 songs in your pocket.

Bill Gates wanted to put a computer on every desk and in every home.

Dawn McCarty is on a mission to help you protect your digital products created by visionaries like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates!

Having Dawn as a keynote speaker is comparable to having Steve Jobs and Bill Gates in their respective industries.
