The Future (as predicted by Dave McClure)

November 13, 2010

I really can’t improve on Dave’s prescience, so I’ll just quote his post from this past April.

“Facebook wins LBS. Google, Apple remain strong in search & media respectively. PayPal gets bought (likely by MSFT). Amazon stays strong in commerce & infrastructure. AOL stays afloat in content & advertising (maybe). Microsoft dies in mobile & consumer (very) slowly, acquires lots of stuff along the way. Yahoo dies slowly, and/or likely gets bought (or merged with the new AOL). eBay dies quickly; nobody notices. Twitter gets bought by Google or MSFT (or maybe Cisco?) within 3 years.”

Dave, please let me know the next time you plan to be in Las Vegas, so I can be your shadow.
