Last week, The Wall Street Journal held its annual All Things D conference, of which the heavyweights of the heavyweights (Tim Cook, Sheryl Sandberg, Dick Costolo, Elon Musk and many others) came to Rancho Palos Verdes, CA to sit down with Walt Mossberg, Kara Swisher and colleagues to discuss the state of the tech industry.
Although all the presentations are nuggetworthy some way, shape or form, Mary Meeker’s (VC at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and formerly of Morgan Stanley) annual State of the Internet is especially noteworthy. It’s amazing to see 117 slides go in 23 minutes flat – I mean this presentation moves! Moreover, I feel this presentation has been shared around the blogosphere more than any other at D11. For instance, here’s one post from Philip Elmer-Dewitt of the Apple 2.0 Blog highlighting 10 of the 117 slides that pertain specifically to Apple.
I say watch the presentation and check all 117!
