In this intimate fireside chat, Calacanis interviews his personal publishing and pundit hero, Tim O'Reilly, about Tim O'Reilly. Typically Tim's the moderator or discussing a theory, but Tim's never discussed how he built O'Reilly, the Web 2.0 conference and himself, into the most respected technology publisher on the planet. Calacanis hopes to tease out the secrets of Tim's success, and how year-after-year, and decade-after-decade, he remains relevant and engaged. This panel is a first and a must for publishers, technologies, brand builders and thinkers.
Jason McCabe Calacanis is the founder and CEO of Mahalo.com, a website where you can "learn anything." He also founded the Open Angel Forum, which provides entrepreneurs free access to angel investors, and This Week In, a live-streaming video network that also hosts his show This Week in Startups. Most recently he founded the LAUNCH conference, where 40 startups launch in front of 1,000 industry leaders, and the LAUNCH newsletter, which publishes well-researched and honest insights into the startup world. He is an angel investor/advisor to over 20 companies.
Prior to Mahalo's launch, Jason was an “Entrepreneur in Action” at Sequoia Capital, as well as the founder and CEO of Weblogs, Inc., a network of popular blogs that AOL acquired in November 2005. At AOL he was senior vice president and general manager of AOL’s Netscape and Weblogs Inc groups. Jason was also the founder and CEO of Silicon Alley Reporter, which sold its flagship publication to Dow Jones.
Jason frequently delivers keynotes at the world's largest tech conferences (CeBIT, LeWeb, DLD), and he is regularly featured and quoted in major news outlets including CNN, 60 Minutes, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Tim O’Reilly is the founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, Inc., thought by many to be the best computer book publisher in the world. O’Reilly Media also hosts conferences on technology topics, including the O’Reilly Open Source Convention, the Web 2.0 Summit, and the Gov 2.0 Summit. 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. Tim is on the boards of CollabNet, Safari Books Online, and Code for America.
