This week O’Reilly Media, Inc. and Techweb co-produced the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco. The expo was designed to showcase the brightest new ideas for building the next generation of the web. There were many notable keynotes but the one that caught our eye was from Mr. Tim O’Reilly himself. If I tried to paraphrase what he said, I would sound stupid so I really suggest you watch the entire video. He did however give a breif mention of one of our Bounty colleagues BarTor.
Tim’s blog, the O’Reilly Radar “watches the alpha geeks” to determine emerging technology trends, and serves as a platform for advocacy about issues of importance to the technical community.
I particularly enjoyed the parts of the keynote where he describes how the web is growing and learning like a child. I have used the same comparison when referring to our site and I think it perfectly describes the Android platform. Google may have severely crippled the Market left out some things, but the community has stepped up to fill the holes.
Speaking of changes, we have a lot in store for our regular readers. We are always open to new ideas though. Our goal is to provide value to our readers, so let us know how we can help.
O’Reilly Media, Inc. has also just released their first Android book “Android Application Development: Rough Cuts Version“. You can pre-order a copy now for only $24.99.
Thank you Andreas from 3banana for the tip.
