The most important things to pay attention to aren't always the most obvious. Tim O'Reilly takes a look at some of the deep trends underlying open source, and some of the cool projects and ideas that are keeping folks at O'Reilly up at night. He also presents some results from O'Reilly's recent market research efforts, combining information from book sales patterns with other indications of technology adoption and interest patterns.
Here are the slides from Tim's presentation (PDF).
