Tim O’Reilly is to technologists what Yoda is to Jedis: the gatekeeper to knowledge and tools that can help improve the world. For years, his company O’Reilly Media has helped generation-after-generation understand, use, and—eventually—innovate upon technology. Today, he’s tackling the delicate relationship between tech and society in his book WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us.
He joins Webby Podcast host DMD for the final episode of Season 2, and for a great conversation on how our current relationship to tech will determine our future, his upbringing in 1960s San Francisco, and more.
“ The future gets assembled, step-by-step as each person makes another discovery. ”
Even though Season 2 is over, there are still plenty stories of the Internet to catch up on! You can find all episodes of the Webby Podcast here or on ACast. Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever else you get your podcasts.
