Hungry for a view into the future of the Internet?
Check out Mary Meeker’s take on the latest Internet trends via a massive (112 slides) slide deck (May 2012, updated annually). This year’s report has five sections that cover the following:
- basic statistics,
- re-imagination (of nearly everything),
- read on the economy,
- USA Inc. ( a non-partisan look at the U.S. government (and its financials) from a business perspective), and
- “bubble” (or not?).
The re-imagination section includes several examples of business models through to what Kleiner Perkins’ refers to as:
the “third wave of innovation,” combining social networking, mobile and e-commerce.
In December, 2010 Mary Meeker left her position as a managing director at Morgan Stanley and head of the bank’s global technology research team to become a partner at the Silicon Valley venture capital firm of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Meeker was named “one of the ten smartest people in tech” by “Fortune” magazine in 2010.
