PS 4/09: Tim O’Reilly in action

Filed under: web 2.0 — plinius @ 9:22 am

tim-oreillyTim O’Reilly (picture) is one of the front figures in the 2.0-movement.

He is a respected publisher of practical data books – like Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, but better known as a mover and shaker in the 2.0 field. He organizes and links, pushes and promotes. His company publishes an excellent collective blog – O’Reilly Radar – on current trends and events.

He is also able to put in some money to get things going – but it is clearly the social movement and the change processes that interest him. Since he is a businessman as well as an evangelist, his thinking is rooted, realistic, anchored and concrete. Since he is an evangelist as well as a businessman, he has a much more open and relaxed attitude to discussion and debate than traditional firms – where the boss is always watching.

If we may talk about digital enlightenment, he represents it.
