En beretning om nettets tilstand

Det pågår akkurat nå en stor Web 2.0 Summit i San Fransico med foredragsholdere fra stort sett alle de store og kjente bedriftene. For en god oversikt over nettets tilstand akkurat nå anbefales denne presentasjonen av Mary Meeker i Morgan Stanley (ja, nettopp, den legendariske Mary Meeker fra dotcom-tiden):


Internet Trends Presentation -

Dette er en grundig og god oversikt over hvor raskt en del ting skjer på nettet akkurat nå. Av høydepunktene her kan nevnes (sitert fra Mashables sak om presentasjonen):

- There are 670 million 3G subscribers worldwide, 136.6 million in the U.S. and 106.3 million in Japan.
- iOS devices reached 120 million subscribers in 13 quarters, far faster than Netscape, AOL or NTT docomo’s growth rates.
- Nokia and Symbian used to own 62% of the smartphone market (units shipped). Now it’s only 37%, mostly due to Android and iOS.
- It took e-commerce 15 years to get to 5% of retail. Morgan Stanley predicts mobile should get to that same level in five years.
- Streaming video is up to 37% of of Internet traffic during traditional “TV hours.” Netflix is the biggest contributor to this, followed by YouTube.
- Seven of the companies that were in the top 15 publicly traded Internet companies in 2004 are not in that list in 2010.
