Podcast: The Future of Tech, with Chris Dixon

I love reading and listening to Chris Dixon. His thoughts on technology, media, entrepreneurship and marketing are well balanced. He's a realistic optimist. In this podcast, Chris talks about 3 megatrends for the next 5 to 10 years:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • New computing platforms
    • Self-driving Cars
    • Drones
    • Virtual reality/augmented reality

And I like how he states very clearly that these technologies are clearly overhyped right now. He reminds us how long it takes for new technologies to reach the masses. And how traditional thinking (1-3 year horizon) is useless when trying to build fundamentally new business models on new technologies. You need a 5-10 years horizon.
