How Twitter helps him run O'Reilly Media:
Twitter is a great way to 'watch the alpha geeks,' which is my shorthand way of saying that a lot of what we do at O'Reilly is pay attention to people at the edge and look for technologies that are ready to move from the edge to the mainstream that we can help along by publishing, conferences, magazines, online publishing, or activism. There's this great William Gibson line that I use all the time: 'The future is here. It's just not evenly distributed yet.' And sometimes we describe what we do at O'Reilly as 'redistributing the future' and helping it to get here more quickly.
