Every year, Mary offers up her Internet Trends report in the form of slides. This year, it’s 294 slides long, but I’m asking you not to be put off by the length.
Some of the slides have very little on them. Some you may not care about. Speaking for myself, some you may not quite understand. “Hyperconverged Infrastructure” sent me scurrying to Wikipedia.
Okay, so maybe you don’t want to look at all the slides, though I think you’d find it well worthwhile. But the sections on e-commerce, advertising, and consumer spending might get your attention. Those sections start on slide 44. Look, just go to slide 71 on the extent to which social media is driving product discovery and purchasing. If that doesn’t get your attention, I give up.
Personally, I hope you choose to spend some time on the last section (starting at slide 278) on where your tax dollars go and the debt we’ve built up.
Here’s the link to Mary’s presentation where you can view and, if you want, download the report. No charge.
