No current Talk conversations about this book.

This is a great book that is wide ranging discussion of many aspects of digital tech, enriched and deepened with the autobiographical perspectives of a pioneering mover and shaker of the internet, who helped come up with the terms Open Source, Web 2.0 and the maker movement.

Tim O'Reilly offers big picture perspectives on Artificial intelligence, algorithms, augmented workers, worker replacement by robots, and a lot more. I found the book hard to put down. Great read

While O'Reilly is a publisher of tech books, this book is aimed for a lay audience and is eminently readable.

I did an hour interview with Tim and it was a blast. ( )
