Today we are talking to Tim O’Reilly, the Founder of O’Reilly Media. And we discuss his essays on the 21 technologies for the 21st Century, why it’s not a zero-sum game when bringing value to the customer and how AI adoption is helping to redefine the enterprise.
All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!
Tim O’Reilly is the founder, CEO, and Chairman of O’Reilly Media, the company that has been providing the picks and shovels of learning to the Silicon Valley goldrush for the past thirty-five years. The company’s online learning and knowledge-on-demand platform at oreilly.com is used by thousands of enterprises and millions of individuals worldwide. O’Reilly has a history of convening conversations that reshape the computer industry. If you’ve heard the term “open source software”, “web 2.0″, “the Maker movement”,“government as a platform”, or “the WTF economy”, he’s had a hand in framing each of those big ideas. Tim is also a partner at early stage venture firm O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV), and on the boards of Code for America, PeerJ, Civis Analytics, and PopVox. He is the author of many technical books published by O’Reilly Media, and most recently WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us (Harper Business, 2017). He is working on a new book about why we need to rethink antitrust in the era of internet-scale platforms.
