Mary Meeker, a partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, just delivered her annual presentation about the state of the internet. The VC and analyst raced through more than 300 slides in less than an hour, dropping a wealth of knowledge and analysis in a very short period of time.
Here were some of the most startling statistics she shared.
Gaming is more important than a lot of onlookers think, Meeker argued, as many trends that are all over the internet today started with gaming. For instance, emoji can be seen as an outgrowth of badges, originally introduced by Activision back in the early 1980s, and Nvidia started with a gaming focus in 1996, and is now used for artificial intelligence. Some gaming stats:
India is the fastest growing economy in the world, and "consumers are winning" as the internet speeds ahead.
Other topics included media disruption, China, and growing levels of U.S. debt.
The full deck is embedded below.
Correction: Meeker said that 85% of new dollars spent in online advertising go to Google and Facebook.
