Tim O'Reilly

Tim O'Reilly

Founder and CEO: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

Tim has a history of convening conversations that reshape the industry. In 1998, he organized the meeting where the term “open source software” was agreed on, and helped the business world understand its importance. In 2004, with the Web 2.0 Summit, he defined how “Web 2.0” represented not only the resurgence of the web after the dot com bust, but a new model for the computer industry, based on big data, collective intelligence, and the internet as a platform. In 2009, with his “Gov 2.0 Summit,” he framed a conversation about the modernization of government technology that has shaped policy and spawned initiatives at the Federal, State, and local level, and around the world. He has now turned his attention to implications of the on-demand economy and other technologies that are transforming the nature of work and the future shape of the business world. He is the founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media and a partner at O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV). He is also a founder and board member at Maker Media, which spun out of O’Reilly Media in 2012, and a board member at Code for America, PeerJ, Civis Analytics, and PopVox.

Sounding a Web 2.0 theme 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin spoke of the power of doing good by collective action for public benefit.

Craig Mundie (Microsoft Corporation), Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media, Inc.)
All good platforms have "killer apps" that drive their adoption, so if government becomes a platform, what is the killer app that will make Gov 2.0 matter to every citizen, not just the technical elite? Is it electronic medical records? Is it broadband for education? Is it the smart grid? What are the policy issues that we'll need to address in order to make this technology reach every American?
