Beyond the Smartphone & COVID-19's Forced Experiments with Benedict Evans

Play
Read more

In episode 332, continuing our last conversation with Benedict Evans, we discuss the major topics that are dominating the global technology landscape. First, Benedict dissect the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and explain how the forced experiments will shift the immediate future where we work and interact with each other. Moving forward, he discuss what lies beyond the smartphone, specifically touching on VR and AR and analyzed why other technologies such as AI and blockchain are lurking in the background. Finally, he offers his perspectives on our expectations on technology with the dawn of 5G.

Here are the interesting show notes and links to the discussion:

  • Benedict Evans (@benedictevans , LinkedIn, Personal SiteEssays, Newsletter), Venture Partner of Mosaic Ventures & Entrepreneur First & Independent Analyst
  • COVID 19's Forced Experiments
    • Reference: COVID and forced experiments, Presentations: Tech and the New Normal & Tech in 2020: Standing on the shoulders of giants and What comes after Zoom?
    • The COVID 19 have accelerated digital transformation in the past three months more than the last 5 years for certain industries. What are the forced experiments which COVID-19 can help us to understand the evolution of technology, for example, Zoom for video conferencing and what it has and has not solved for us? 
  • Beyond the Smartphone
    • Reference: Should you care about the 5G?
    • Where is the smartphone in the S-curve: the beginning, the middle or the late stage?
    • If we slice and dice the other platforms in the horizon: IoT (or ambient computing), VR or AR, they don’t seem to show the scale that smartphones can extend in terms of their adjacencies. What are the signs that you will identify to show that the smartphone platform is in the decline?
    • What do you think that the contribution of 5G is to the entire telecommunications industry? 
  • Closing
    • Do you have anything from book, article, movie or podcast to recommend to our audience that have inspired you recently?
      • Benedict's recommendation: History of Germany economy in the 1930s-1940s.
    • How can our audience find you?

Technology Regulation, App Store & Global Decoupling with Benedict Evans

Play
Read more

In episode 331, Benedict Evans, the independent analyst and venture partner from Mosaic Ventures & Entrepreneur First, joined us in the first of the two episodes to discuss the major topics that are dominating the global technology landscape. We began the conversation with his recent stint with Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) in Silicon Valley and the key takeaways during his stay there. Then we dived deep into  the key topics which dominate the global technology landscape: tech regulation of the major Internet giants, the app store conversation featuring Fornite vs Apple and the decoupling of the global supply chain with China and India.

Here are the interesting show notes and links to the discussion:

  • Benedict Evans (@benedictevans , LinkedIn, Personal SiteEssays, Newsletter), Venture Partner of Mosaic Ventures & Entrepreneur First & Independent Analyst
    • When we had the first conversation with you, you were a partner in the renowned Silicon Valley venture capital firm, Andreessen Horowitz, the first question for us, what are the key takeaways thinking about technology from the lens of a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley?
    • Since you have moved back to the United Kingdom, what have you been up to?
  • Tech Regulation and App Stores
    • Reference: Regulating Technology , Would breaking up big tech work? What would? and App Stores, Trust & Anti Trust
    • Let’s start with the recent movement in the US by the Congress to call for the break up of the four major tech companies: Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple and potentially restricting their M&A activity. We have the leaders of these four tech companies brought before the Congressional hearings. 
    • From looking at the hearings, what does the regulators get right and wrong about big technology companies and insist that the only way is to ‘break them up’?
    • Can we learn from history on how we should think about breaking up big technology companies? For example drawing on what they did to Standard Oil during the gilded age in the 1900s in the U.S.? 
  • The decoupling of global supply chains
    • Currently, China’s market is 3x times larger than the US. The Indian market is teaming up with US companies to move their supply chain out from China to India, for example, Apple. Will the Chinese and Indian Internet outsize the US market so that it is no longer the axis of innovation and technology growth in the next few decades?
    • Do you think that the future of the Internet is going to be “balkanized”: China, India, Europe, US and the rest of the world? 
    • Will the decoupling of supply chains between China and the US change the way the technology sector will evolve in the next few decades?

F093 How does a doctor become a VC? (Benedict Evans)

Despite enjoying clinical practice, Benedict Evans still came to a point where he felt he is not passionate enough about what he does, and as a surgeon, he realized he enjoys talking to patients more than treating them when they are under anesthesia. He went to a consulting position at McKinsey, then back to an NHS Trust to drive digital innovation and now to a VC position.
