Techdirt Podcast Episode 140: WTF With Tim O'Reilly

from the big-picture dept

The rapid forward march of technology has long bred two leading camps of onlookers: the techno-optimists and the techno-pessimists. Honest people on both sides, however, must admit that technological innovation has had both positive and negative effects. Internet legend Tim O’Reilly is one of the people who think a lot about these issues, and his new book WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us — which discusses in detail the world that we are building with technology — was released today, and we’re pleased to have him join us on this week’s episode to talk about the book and the future of innovation.

(Apologies for the lack of an episode last week — an ongoing outage at our cloud recording platform has left us unable to access the audio files. Though that episode is a bit out of date now, we’re hoping we’ll be able to get it out later this week.)
