One reason to be optimistic
Last night I managed to catch most of a really fascinating interview on Charlie Rose (disclaimer: the Charlie Rose show is a PatronMail client) and his guest was Marc Andreessen, who is famously the founder of Netscape, which evolved into Firefox.
I don't think I ever fully grasped why Netscape was such a success until I watched this interview. This guy is truly brilliant, and if you want a reason to feel optimistic about how technology is going to continue to revolutionize our lives for the next 50 years, watch this show.
As you probably know I've been thinking a lot about newspapers and the demise of that industry, and Andreessen minces no words on that topic. He also talks about the next generation of the iPhone and the how the Kindle and products like it will change how we read books.
Here's a link to watch the interview on the Charlie Rose Web site.
Let me know what you think.
