Mobile transformation is finally here [Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkZk2SKd1E0]
In the realm of stock market investing, Warren Buffett is known affectionately as the 'Oracle of Omaha' by his legions of fans. The nickname refers to the small city that he has called home most of his adult life. Along those lines, I propose we call Mary Meeker the 'Oracle of Silicon Valley' for her prescient and mostly accurate views on the digital marketplace.
This former bank analyst, now a private equity financier investing in the very space she once wrote about, makes an annual Internet Trends report that pretty much stops the clock in the technology world. Everyone wants to hear what this particular oracle has to say about the rapidly evolving online world. One of the best aspects of her presentation is just how long she has studied the space: since the very beginning. If you want to get a sense of just how profoundly the Internet space has changed during the past two decades, take a look at her list of the largest Internet companies of 1995. Remember Netscape?
