That aside, we agree that things like distributed architecture, trust architecture (aka blockchain), advanced connectivity, biotech and next-generation materials are all important (as I've said in the past, the future is carbon, carbon and carbon (think things like neuro-computing, graphene, and bio-tech). Note, though, that the carbon stuff is longer-term (think 10-15 years) while the architecture stuff is short-term (think 5-10 years). Image: my carbon-carbon-carbon meme-style illustration.
