Tune into Valley View, coming up Nov 28 at 11 am Pacific Time! In our last show, we sat down with big, established players like Oracle and Cisco, and we heard how changing industry trends and small upstarts were creating market transitions that required these industry leaders to react. For November's Valley View program, we're going to switch to the upstart side of the conversation, focusing on a handful of new companies that are threatening to unravel established businesses, or established ways of thinking.

In our opening segment, we'll talk with Ben Milne, the CEO of Dwolla, the new darling in the online payment space. They are taking on PayPal, credit cards, payment networks and ACH (Automated Clearing House). We will also feature Justin Kan, CEO of Exec, a relatively new concierge service. Oh, and BYTE editor Boonsri Dickinson will put Exec to the test to see how far she can push the service.

We've got other guests as well, and as usual, we'll feature a few companies in our Elevator Pitch segment, and we'll be giving away an Apple Mini iPad.
