Person posts question to Tim O’Reilly believing he's Bill O’Reilly

Someone posts a question about the electoral process; Tim replies: "I think you must think you're talking to Bill O'Reilly, not Tim O'Reilly the technical publisher, but I'll take a stab at it anyway." The user remains confused. (HT: @torrez)


  1. I really enjoy Bill O Reilly. He’s a smart man and everything he says, even if you don’t agree with it, has been carefully thought out. He’s also as much of a listener as he is a talker, and there’s a very good reason that his books sell so well. Smart people buy good books.

    It was also a bold move making all his books DRM free. The php/MySQL book was a big advantage to me.

      1.  You’re over-simplifying things to support your argument, and skipping my more salient points. You’re acting like TIM O’Reilly, not Bill.

      2. I think you must be thinking of Bill O’Reilly, the Australian cricket player, not Bill O’Reilly the American technical publisher.

  2. Next up, Takers versus Makers…
