Tim O’Reilly Gets Profiled

In its current issue Wired magazine contains a thoughtful and entertainingly eclectic Steve Levy profile of O’Reilly & Associates founder Tim O’Reilly. The piece ranges across Esalen and the human potential movement, Tim’s relationship with George Simon, tensions with his father, how the technology downturn reforged O’Reilly’s business, and how Tim is still hungry for a big financial score — even if it has to happen his way.

Definitely worth reading, both for its insights into Tim’s character, as well as for this story of how one entrepreneur has done things his way.
