"Mobile Will Be Bigger Than Desktop Internet in 5 Years" From Mary Meeker's Updated "Internet Trends" Report (87 Slides)

If you're interested in the Internet, the mobile web, social web, and many related tech areas, Mary Meeker is a person you should know about (if you don't know about her already, you probably do.)

Mathew Ingram at Gigaom provides this excellent intro: to Ms. Meeker and the new report.

Mary Meeker of Morgan Stanley isn’t just any Internet analyst. She was covering the sector when the brokerage firm was the lead underwriter for Netscape Communications’ initial public offering in 1995, was dubbed the “Queen of the Net” by Barron’s magazine in 1998 and was covering the space in 2004, when Morgan Stanley helped launch the Google IPO. Now a managing director at Morgan Stanley and head of the global technology research team, she has released her latest massively detailed “State of the Internet” report, which she has been putting out periodically since 1995. She presented the report during an event this afternoon [Monday] at Google, which was streamed live as part of the Events@Google series.

Here are a few highlights (12 to be specific) from the 87 slides (PDF) with interesting analysis, stats, graphs, and tables that we think will be of interest to ResourceShelf readers. Again, there are 87 slides! If you want to go directly to the report, use this link.

    Wednesday, 29th October 2014

    Regulatory compliance has long been the stock in trade of corporate information professionals, and the flow of regulation shows no sign of drying up.
