Today with me in the Podcast is Tim O'Reilly, the Founder & CEO of O'Reilly Media and boy, his 1,5 million twitter followers are there for a reason!

People call him "the Oracle of the Silicon Valley", he came up with the term "Web 2.0" - This man is crazy a wizard!

We spoke about:

  • Writing as superpower! How it helps you to structure your thoughts.
  • How he started OSCON and great nerdy 90s
  • The big tectonic "Platform changes" and how the giants use "Algorithmic Rents" to silently put more money into their pockets
  • The wrong incentives and optimization functions of our economy and how to change it
  • How we are part of "the machine" and "the machine" needs us to decide what is good ("ham") and what is bad ("spam")

Brilliant thoughts! Thank you so much Tim!
