VC Mary Meeker Rocks All Things Digital [video]

VC Mary Meeker Rocks All Things Digital [video] | BI Revolution |

Marty Note
If you missed Mary Meeker's amazing 110 slides at the D10 All Things Digital conference in the summer take 15 minutes without distraction to watch her presentation now. Without distraction because she moves fast and speaks a different VC language.

I'm glad I missed Meeker presentation in a way because now it is possible to check off her predictions such as the Google mobile problems leading to their recent earnings miss. If you are interested in how the future of all things digital may turn out, take 15 minutes in a quiet room to watch this amazing presentation.

Hearts and Minds - Why Next Web Favors People Not Logistics

Hearts and Minds - Why Next Web Favors People Not Logistics | BI Revolution |

If the first use of our magical global network was mostly about logistics the next web is going to be mostly about connection. Walmart and other big box retailers took advantage of the web to build logistics that would make Romans proud.


In fact the ONLY expression of logistics on the web is our kudos or complaints. Logistics are too far removed from places hearts and minds are won. Granted logistics can make it easier or harder to win hearts and minds.

This ScentTrail Marketing blog post and Haiku Deck demonstrates how two lines will cross. One line is the profits and power from logistics and it is significant but not growing. The other line represents gains from creating community via the social web and that line is growing rapidly.

When those line cross it will be clear that the next web is about people not logistics.
