Ryan Freitas, co-founder of about.me, joining the Big Omaha speaker lineup

Over the past two weeks, we have announced a new speaker joining the Big Omaha lineup each Thursday. Today we're excited to release the third speaker joining us at 2014's Big Omaha before following up with one more next Thursday before tickets go on sale.

We are thrilled to have Ryan Freitas, co-founder of about.me, join us May 7-9. Last year we hosted Tony Conrad, the startup's other founder, at Big Omaha. Tony encouraged us to reach out to Ryan and we had the chance to meet up with him when we were in San Francisco last year.

About.me helps your own your identity by hosting a page that helps others find and learn about you. Ryan leads the product team at about.me and comes from a background of interaction and user experience. He also is an advisor and investor in Blue Bottle Coffee, Luna, Brand, Spinrtly, Ediotorially and GigaOm.

Please join us in giving @RyanChris a huge welcome to Big Omaha 2014!
