It's crazy to think of how many major platforms that we still all use were launched in 2007 - and how important they were to internet innovation. I want to talk about the list of what was launched in 2000 and how many were still around even 2 years later! lol. Great list.

2006 and three point in 2007. And then I stopped. I kind of thought I had not framework to understand things. It turns out care the 2007 was a bad year to stop sniffing glue. My stockbroker says, Um, because what happened in 2007 is that technology platform made another big step. Well, the iPhone earlier with really the impetus for this. So yeah, but basically happens in 2007 is the iPhone comes out. Eso We begin the process of putting a hand held computer connected to the Internet in the palm of basically we're on our way to everybody on the planet. But of course, what also happened in 2007 was Facebook. At late 2006, breaks out of high schools and universities, goes global. Twitter goes global in 2007, start in 2006. Ha Dubious, started in 2007, gives US foundation for big data get hub. It started in 2007. Gives us the world's biggest open source. 2007. Yeah, um, Android came out in 2007. Kindle came out in 2007. IBM Watson was started in 2007. Airbnb start in 2007. The price of sequencing the human genome collapsed in 2007. Fracking started in 2007. Solar energy took off in 2007 and Intel went off. Silicon for the first time in 2007 introduced non silicon materials into its transistors to all these combined. And I would argue the iPhone debut was really that was kicked it off. That was that's 100% by the way, the cloud was born in 2007. Um, you know, But the cloud is we know it today really was born in 2007. And so it turns out, 2007 may be seen in time as one of the greatest technological inflection points in history because what it did, it was also based on a price collapse. But it collapse the price of compute and storage so much so that we could now leverage all that compute and storage to change four kinds of power. We change the power of one Holy Mac. We have a president elect who consider in his penthouse and now tweet directly to tens of millions of people around the world. Others could do before and hadn't availed themselves right. But here's what's new. Soaking the head of Isis from Raqqa problem. Now this thing is scaled to everybody. Second, it change. The power machines machines now have all five senses their cognition. They can think they can design IBM. Watson two weeks ago co wrote a song, so machines suddenly were endowed with these new kinds of power. It changed the power flows. Ideas now flow and circulate at a speed and scale we haven't seen before. You know, President Obama five years ago said marriage is between a man and a woman. Five years later, he's following Ireland in saying blessedly so. Marriages between any two human beings. We love each other, so ideas they're not changing faster.
