(Charlottesville, VA) September 14, 2011—Silverchair Information Systems is pleased to announce that Tim O’Reilly, Founder & CEO of O’Reilly Media, will be presenting the keynote at Silverchair Strategies 2011.
“Tim is a world-renowned speaker and someone who has been thinking deeply at the intersection of publishing and technology for a long time. We are thrilled he has agreed to share his perspective and insight with our clients, partners and other industry stakeholders,” said Silverchair Executive Vice President, Michael Clarke. “Silverchair has been participating at O’Reilly conferences for years and we are delighted to bring a piece of that experience to Silverchair Strategies 2011.”
As the CEO of a dynamic and successful technical publisher and a leading technologist, O’Reilly is the ideal keynote speaker for Silverchair Strategies 2011, which is organized around the themes of content integration, personalization, and product development in the science, technical, and medical (STM) and scholarly information space. The majority of the conference will be organized around a series of case studies, workshops, conversational panels, and provocative presentations—including O’Reilly’s keynote.
According to Oreilly.com, “O’Reilly has been a chronicler and catalyst of leading-edge development, homing in on the technology trends that really matter and spurring their adoption by amplifying “faint signals” from the alpha geeks who are creating the future.” Beyond the success of O’Reilly Media, Tim is widely considered a visionary and trend spotter and is notable for having popularized the term “Web 2.0” in the 2005 essay, “What is Web 2.0.”
Mr. O’Reilly’s presentation will take place on Friday, October 28th at the Chicago Ritz-Carlton. Those interested in requesting an invitation to the conference should visit http://strategies.silverchair.com/ for more information.
