Kudos for O'Reilly Conferences

"O'Reilly conferences are ground zero for the open source alpha geek tribe." —Jon Udell, Infoworld

"...the O'Reilly event machine is unmatched in its ability to generate buzz and get everyone excited about topics that they've never heard of." —Gunnar, OnePeople

"The O'Reilly conferences are the gold standard for drawing together a critical mass of thought leaders." —Steve Gillmor, CRN

"O'Reilly's interest is in delivering valuable content to people, in whatever way they can. Paperbacks, blogs, conferences, ebooks, podcasts. O'Reilly is a publisher, not just a book publisher: they find good content they think people will like, and package it in different shapes and sizes to meet the different needs and wants of their customers." —Hugh McGuire, founder of LibriVox.org, co-founder of BookOven.com

"One of the biggest draws of any O'Reilly event is the caliber and quality of the speakers, workshops, and information sessions...These events attract individuals who are pushing the boundaries and making serious headway to effect transformative change...The O'Reilly team truly deserves a great deal of credit. Quite frankly, they are rock stars. From planning to coordination to execution, these folks serve as the backbone and very lynchpin of attendee success. The work they do is behind the scenes but their impact is measurable and significant...There is a reason that we chose to come out of stealth at Where 2.0 in San Jose in March, and return for Gov 2.0 in DC. It's not just the visibility of such a well-known forum, nor is it the prestige and validation of being not just "good enough," but "real enough" to partake, nor is it the opportunity to collude and discuss with the best and brightest in their field. It's an opportunity to forge the path ahead in a field that we are passionate about." —CiviGuard Blog
