Tim O’Reilly’s keynote this morning at the Web 2.0 Expo NY was inspired and inspiring. To be in New York this week, with markets crazy and the Feds bailing out Wall Street icons – and talking web 2.0. That’s not an enviable spot. And Tim handled it by going to the heart – musing on what it means for the web to meet the world.
From an engineering perspective, that means sensors and opening up the data they capture. But O’Reilly also talked about lasting values:
- Follow your heart
- Work on the the problems that matter
- Create more value than you capture
Interestingly, he also plugged several innovative nonprofits as examples:
- Click Diagnostics – for profit
- 23 and Me - also for-profit, but using that profit to further knowledge of the genome
There’s a more detailed summary on Kris Jordan’s blog.
Video should be posted in a day or so on the Web 2.0 Expo site.
