If you follow tech like we do, then you must have heard the name Mary Meeker at least once or twice in your daily coverage.
If you haven’t, Ms. Meeker is a general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. She focuses on investments in the firm’s digital practice and helps lead KPCB’s Digital Growth Fund, targeting high-growth Internet companies that have achieved rapid adoption and scale.
In addition, Meeker is also know for her Internet Trends Report, presented at the D11 conference. Now in its second year, this highly-touted benchmark report of where the Internet is, where it is going and where it has came from has proven to be a great resource for investors, analysts, journalists and even the tech layman.
This year’s report shows, among other things, the rapid change in the mobile OS spectrum. Namely, the rise of iOS and Android and the fall of Symbian. Strangely, BlackBerry OS market share (by units shipped) looks to have increased since 2005 (slide 7).
Meeker also introduces the likelihood of wearable tech such as Google Glass and smartwatches impacting the marketplace.
