Jessi Hempel


Jessi Hempel is a senior writer at WIRED covering the business of technology. Before joining WIRED this year, she served as a senior writer for Fortune, where she penned cover stories on Yahoo!, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, as well as IBM and RIM. In the past, she has written in-depth articles on the structural problems that threatened to hinder Twitter’s growth as well as the emerging competition between Facebook and Google over the social web. Hempel also wrote about design and technology for Business Week.




Robbie Kaplan


Roberta A. Kaplan is an American litigator and partner in the Litigation Department of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison and an adjunct professor of law at Columbia University Law School. Called “amazing” by President Bill Clinton, she has been cited as one of “100 Most Influential Lawyers in the United States.” In a move that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder described as “unusual for a private attorney” she successfully argued before the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of her client, Edith (Edie) Windsor, in United States v. Windsor. This resulted in the groundbreaking decision that invalidated a crucial section in the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
