O'Reilly & Associates, Inc. Changes Name to O'Reilly Media, Inc.

O'Reilly & Associates, Inc. is now O'Reilly Media, Inc. As it enters its second quarter-century, the company has changed its name to reflect its expanding array of products and services. Though the legendary "animal books" remain a centerpiece of O'Reilly's business, the new name better conveys the company's diverse technology information offerings--conferences, the O'Reilly Network suite of web sites, Safari Tech Books Online, and the new web-based custom publishing platform, SafariU. O'Reilly has consolidated its international subsidiaries under the O'Reilly Media rubric, bringing all O'Reilly companies together in one corporate entity.

"I like to say that we pick the hat to fit the head," said founder and president Tim O'Reilly. "The best medium to fit technology information may be a book, an online service, a conference, or some form that we haven't invented yet. Our new name, O'Reilly Media, is inclusive enough to describe all that we do."

About O'Reilly

O'Reilly Media spreads the knowledge of innovators through its books, online services, magazines, and conferences. Since 1978, O'Reilly Media has been a chronicler and catalyst of cutting-edge development, homing in on the technology trends that really matter and spurring their adoption by amplifying "faint signals" from the alpha geeks who are creating the future. An active participant in the technology community, the company has a long history of advocacy, meme-making, and evangelism.
