PSA post today for all you mobile and technology fans. I wanted to highlight a couple of excellent reports that should be on your radar. Chronologically speaking, the first being from Benedict Evans of Andreessen Horowiztz (a16z.com – a16z, get it? Geek-minded would, but I’ll let you google it) as well as Mary Meeker of Kleiner Perkins. They are both on my radar as I consider them to be great though leaders covering mobile and Internet trends and offer insightful information supported by real-world data. I look forward to the content they publish and check it out regularly.
Benedict’s slides for "Mobile is Eating the World" are more focused on mobile and AI/bots, which explains why it’s only 77 slides long, while Mary’s slides "2017 Internet Trends" are broadly covering Internet trends, and thus 355 slides. (yeah, 355) Great content in both. Artificial intelligence is well covered in Benedict’s slides so more closely aligned with our own bots endeavors. Not sure why Meeker's deck has no references to AI. Out of scope for Internet Trends? Doesn't make sense. Anyways, good info nonetheless which is why I suggest you check out both.
You can go thru their slides yourself at the links below, but otherwise, a couple of interesting things...
Here's the links to the slides from Benedict Evans and Mary Meeker. I put them here at the end so that there would be a chance that you'd read this far. If I had put them earlier, you'd have become engrossed by their great content. Kind of like Reddit. :)
As you can see, everything is moving forward at a wiki-wiki pace. Well, almost everything. We need to get that Paris Climate Agreement back on track. I mean seriously, when you’re swinging far right of Exxon and Conoco, you’ve got to question that decision, am I right?
