III. Newsworthy News for Emerging Tech
More proof of the 12 Tech Theses of the 2030s:
- Music: streaming to wearables is the holy grail. Apple Music + AirPods is the future. Meanwhile, Spotify paid subs (50M)= 2x Apple Music (27M).
- Video: the product answer to standing out from a commoditized crowd.
- Self-Driving AR: this future iPhone sensor might be the trojan horse into the Apple Car.
- Nanotech: control nanobots over a live stream of video. The convergence continues.
- Cryptocurrency: just tipped. The Fund of the Future’s job is to 1) filter out crap for LPs and 2) go wherever alpha is, regardless of vehicle. Blue collar mining means nothing like it used to, even if the working conditions seem similar.
- Ethereum: we predicted its rise, and its fall. Greed + fear = human emotion, regardless of vehicle.
- Cybersecurity: emerging markets aren’t your friend. This startup seems undervalued knowing the threat of War 3.0.
- AI: Microsoft’s super secret, but growing, team gets the power of AI at the edge. Be wary if they start investing in Biologic Intelligence.
- The Shift: a VC gets it.
- Amazon: now Deep Sea as a Platform (DSAAP?)
- Space: mining is going to be here before you know it. The 2030s Theses is a misnomer because it’s all actually playing out today. Get somebody focused on it immediately and stop focusing on tired digital transformation. That’s not where the future ROIC is.
- Biomimmicry: next up, 3d printing animal connectomes after animal hearts.
- Biohacking: when your body becomes your iPhone.
- Robotics: delving into the 3 laws assumes the world wants humanoids to exist. Elon sure doesn’t.
- VC: Shahin Farshchiechos many of our theses in one post.
- Sports: moneyball hits the NBA. Just hire this guy’s voice already.
- Luxury: IoLT is the new upscale Trojan horse. LVMH believes luxury is the one place where it doesn’t make sense to go Amazon. We agree and built EVERAE to prove the concept.
- Climate: shit.
#TheShift has begun, becoming ripe when a convergence across multiple sectors happens with increasing regularity.
