Benedict Evans has seen the future and it’s an S curve (video)

Sand Hill Road’s favorite futurist on Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon.

Evans’ keynote at the Andreessen Horowitz Tech Summit is now available on YouTube.

My take: If you’re interested in where autonomy, machine learning and cryptocurrencies are headed, there are worse ways to spend 24 minutes.

    I listened to Evans twice. Not so much because I found his talk incredibly interesting (it was) but because I had difficulty following his particular British accent spoken at high speed.

      I agree that the talk does go quickly. It doesn’t allow a lot of time to ponder, realize and wonder – before you are torn off in a completely different direction – but I still think it is pretty interesting, and I am curious to see “what comes next?”

      Of course, in the meantime, Apple announces that it has purchased Shazam….
