Link to oreillynet.com disappeared from oreilly.com's front page

Link to oreillynet.com disappeared from oreilly.com's front page. Not sure if this was intended or not. But I can still access oreillynet.com directly.

  • Hello cybrcodr,

    You can still access the O'Reilly Network at http://www.oreillynet.com/. I removed the link intentionally as we embark upon a process of re-integrating ORN with oreilly.com. This has been in the works for awhile, and bits and pieces are rolling out over the next couple of months. We're moving away from the old systems and architecture of ORN and towards ones that are focused on our audiences. More to come....

  • It looks like as of 2008.08.01, oreillynet.com is completely gone. I had oreillynet.com as my home page, and it now redirects to oreilly.com.

    I can't say I like the change. oreilly.com seems to be much more of a "corporate" page; I don't really want to have two columns of "new items" sales links to wade through. The "news" column is a mismash of blogs, radar, and articles from the different topical sites, so it's a lot harder to identify something I want to read.

  • Hello Rangefinder,

    Yes, as of today, oreillynet.com redirects to oreilly.com. We made this change to consolidate our online presence, as opposed to distributing it over oreilly.com, oreillynet.com, onlamp.com, onjava.com, and many other sites that were hard to maintain and connect, and often went stale as interest in them dissipated. What we're doing now is consolidating news back onto oreilly.com (it was once this way), and using a flexible tagging structure for content. While there is a mix of book releases and other product news, we're working to achieve the right balance. On top of that, we're shortly embarking on a re-architecting exercise that will result in an even better layout.

    In the meantime, we're publishing more hard news than we have for quite a while through the new news platform on oreilly.com, and you may have seen the excellent coverage in the form of audio and video interviews from OSCON as well as the series of screencasts we started a couple months back. Much more is in store.

    All websites are works in progress, so please keep communicating as we work to reach the right balance. You can also link directly to http://news.oreilly.com/ to see less book releases and conference announcements.

    Regards, --Allen
