Tim O'Reilly (@timoreilly) is one of the most fascinating polymaths I've ever encountered. Wired has called him "the trend spotter" in the world of tech and macrotrends.Tim is the founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media, Inc. His original business plan was pretty simple: "interesting work for interesting people," and that's worked out pretty well. His company has generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue doing everything from online learning, book publishing, running conferences, urging companies to create more value than they capture, and trying to change the world by spreading and amplifying the knowledge of innovators.In '93, Tim launched the first commercial website. In '98, he organized the meeting where the term "open source software" was agreed upon and helped the business world understand its emerging importance. Tim has now turned his attention and is very focused on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its implications, the on-demand economy, and other technologies that are transforming the nature of work and the future shape of the business world.His new book is WTF?: What's the Future and Why It's Up to Us. Enjoy!This podcast is brought to you by Peloton, which has become a staple of my daily routine.

This week Ana Maria Allessi sits down with O’Reilly Media founder and author of WTF?, Tim O’Reilly. They discuss how technology platforms can show us how to deal with economic inequality, what Uber and Lyft teach us about cognitive augmentation in jobs, Tim’s experience with policy makers, and so much more. In today’s economy, we have far too much dismay along with our amazement, and technology bears some of the blame. In this combination of memoir, business strategy guide, and call to action, Tim O'Reilly, Silicon Valley’s leading intellectual and the founder of O’Reilly Media, explores the upside and the potential downsides of today's WTF? technologies.
The rapid forward march of technology has long bred two leading camps of onlookers: the techno-optimists and the techno-pessimists. Honest people on both sides, however, must admit that technological innovation has had both positive and negative effects. Internet legend Tim O'Reilly is one of the people who think a lot about these issues, and his new book WTF? What's the Future and Why It's Up to Us — which discusses in detail the world that we are building with technology — was released today, and we're pleased to have him join us on this week's episode to talk about the book and the future of innovation.
Our guest this week is Tim O'Reilly. He's the founder of O'Reilly Media, a company the spreads the knowledge of innovators through technology books, online services, magazines, research, and tech conferences.
