Tim O’Reilly–The Software Paradigm Shift.

Get to know the man behind the animal-woodcut covers that fill our bookshelves. His mission: “Technology transfer–helping important technologies become more widespread” and to “create more value than we capture.”

Many forget how influential O’Reilly & Associates was during the early days of the Internet. They created Global Network Navigator (GNN), the first portal and serious e-commerce web site, which they sold to AOL, who proceeded to drop the ball. (Tim tells us why he doesn’t regret selling GNN.) And remember Internet In a Box, a collaboration of O’Reilly and Spry Software?

All of this and more in a great IT Conversation with Tim O’Reilly. [Web Services Strategies]

Great audio interview…
