O'Reilly Media

Mike Loukides is vice president of content strategy for O’Reilly Media. He’s edited many highly regarded books on technical subjects that don’t involve Windows programming. He’s particularly interested in programming languages, Unix and what passes for Unix these days, and system and network administration. Mike is the author of System Performance Tuning and a coauthor of Unix Power Tools. Most recently, he’s been fooling around with data and data analysis, languages like R, Mathematica, and Octave, and thinking about how to make books social.
