Mary Meeker @ WEB2.0 SUMMIT
It is fascinating, and I would say important analysis for anyone in the technological innovation game!
Dr Mary Meeker - one of my 'fave' trend analysts - is a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Mary focuses on emerging technology trends and companies, co-authoring industry-defining books, where her reports are read worldwide.
Dubbed 'The Queen of the Net,' Mary has covered companies that have created more than 200,000 jobs over the past 25 years while the companies increased their collective market value by more than $900 billion: Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Adobe, Intuit, Electronic Arts, Activision, Yahoo!, Amazon.com, eBay, priceline.com, Google and Alibaba.
But it was her talk at WEB2.0 Summit on 'Internet Trends' that stands out most. I think this is a must-must-must view video-seminar.
The reason? The statistics are shocking in terms of not only how fast and innovatively the internet has changed over the last 2-to-3 years (site innovation, design, architecture, applications, content, hardware and human Interfaces); but also in terms of the changes in the geographic location and demographics of end USERS (where, who and how the net is being used).
