Today, there are a growing number of online social platforms where people can share and get ideas on several areas of life. O'Reilly is also a similar media space, which lets innovators post their ideas and interact with their clients. To have insight into this O'Reilly we will explore key points about it in the following discussion.

Findings from O'Reilly

O'Reilly.com is an online media place, which works as a platform to share the knowledge. It spreads the knowledge of people who are innovators and have innovative ideas to share in the field of technology. People upload their ideas and information regarding their innovations and make the best use of the site as a knowledgeable platform. The website uses books having technological contents, online services, magazines, research and tech conferences to share the knowledge with viewers (O'Reilly, 2013).

The radar section of the website uses news and commentary where one can find news on gadgets, technological trends and latest developments in software and hardware.
