Why I Love Hackers

TechWeb TV posted a short video from my opening keynote at ETech. Nominally this year’s version of my O’Reilly Radar talk, which focuses on emerging trends that we’re watching, the talk was wrapped in a larger theme, namely, why I love hackers, the edges they explore, and why hackers and alpha geeks, not entrepreneurs, are the first step in technology innovation. The video contains a short segment from the opening of the talk, and the closing.

I hope to have the video of the entire talk available soon.

    Interesting concept, but perhaps those who combine all the traits and talents of hackers, alpha geeks,AND entrepreneurs will become the ultimate tech innovators. ;-)

    Very interesting talk. If Tim think and speak about the ‘alpha geeks’ you know it’s something that you want to check and understand before it will be too late :)
