Hi Everyone,

1. O'Reilly Media are now sponsoring NewFinance

We’re very pleased to welcome O’Reilly Media as our latest sponsor.

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