Hi Reddit- I am Tim O'Reilly, founder & CEO of O'Reilly Media, AMA
My short bio:
You probably know me from O'Reilly books & conferences, including the Open Source Convention (OSCON) and the Web 2.0 meme. My original business plan was “interesting work for interesting people,” and that’s worked out pretty well. I'm also a partner at O'Reilly Alpha Tech Ventures and on the boards of Safari Books Online, Code for America, Maker Media, and PeerJ.
Lately I've been intrigued by the emergence of "Internet of Things" and the opportunities and challenges in this area. You can see me talk about it in this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhUEvsq1xOo.
I'll also be talking about it more at O'Reilly Solid, a new event we started about the Internet of Things: http://solidcon.com/solid2014.
This area is getting a lot of attention now, but I'd like to go beyond the hype and talk about the real ways that IoT can change how we live and do business. I’ll be answering your questions live, starting at 10AM Pacific time.
UPDATE: OK. Time to go! Thanks for all your questions today and hanging out - good stuff! Read more about IoT on the Radar blog, where I post somewhat frequently http://radar.oreilly.com/ I'll also be talking about it at Solid http://solidcon.com/solid2014
