I try not to, but sometimes I have to point to an article that every other weblog is pointing to. The article “Inventing the Future” by Tim O’Reilly is one of those times.

That’s what O’Reilly’s very succcessful book publishing company has been doing for years. Indeed, in the tech book publishing world, O’Reilly is THE alpha geek.
