List of books[edit]

Wondering about the list of books - it would get unwieldy if it had *every* O'Reilly book there. I added a representative sample, i.e. the ones I own :) There should probablary be a Perl and a Missing Manual in there to be more representative, but I'm not sure which to pick...

I would suggest including Sed & Awk as that is a very popular book amongst Unix/Linux administrators and programmers, a mention of the "Nutshell" series of books (eg. Java in a Nutshell), the JavaScript Definitive Guide (aka the Rhino book - in fact Mozilla's JavaScript interpreter is called Rhino in homage) and every network admin's favourite book: DNS & BIND. I wouldn't say either the Mozilla Applications or the PostgreSQL books were anywhere near as popular. --195.8.190.39 13:24, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

How about making the list a little more complete? It doesn't need to include every title, but right now it's a little sparse and sporadic. Oreilly's website lists all of their books by popularity, which could be a good starting point for which ones to show here. 98.210.104.178 (talk) 08:13, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

O'Reilly now has a new logo: oreilly.com. Wikipage should be updated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.83.167.1 (talk) 12:50, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Why the animal covers?[edit]

Maybe the article could include an explanation of why they started putting random animals on the cover of that one series of books.

Fair use rationale for Image:Programming Perl.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Programming Perl.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:32, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

First book "about the web" only includes one chapter about the web?[edit]

Perhaps the author of this fact is confusing the internet with the web (a subset of the internet)? If the author is not confused, then I'd say the following statement is somewhat confusing: "In 1992, when there were only 200 web sites, O'Reilly Media published the first book about the web[citation needed], devoting a whole chapter to it, in Ed Krol's groundbreaking Whole Internet User's Guide and Catalog (1992)." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.204.159.37 (talk) 20:14, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

DRM ?[edit]

Not a single word about DRM, or rather that their eBooks are DRM free?--Cyberman TM (talk) 18:50, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on O'Reilly Media. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

You may set the |checked=, on this template, to true or failed to let other editors know you reviewed the change. If you find any errors, please use the tools below to fix them or call an editor by setting |needhelp= to your help request.

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

If you are unable to use these tools, you may set |needhelp=<your help request> on this template to request help from an experienced user. Please include details about your problem, to help other editors.

False Claims[edit]

This article falsely claims that Dale Dougherty invented the term "Web 2.0" when it was in common usage years earlier (see Wikipedia article on Web 2.0.) You could perhaps make an argument that Dougherty popularized the term (although I would argue against it) but you certainly can't say he came up with it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.45.108.197 (talk) 21:17, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
