Peter and Dan discuss a common conversation theme in Silicon Valley — namely, that most people have no idea how quickly things are changing — and how technology has caused the world to move at an accelerated pace.
In this episode:
- Peter gives short overview of Moore’s Law, the history of computation and the exponential growth in this field.
- Dan and Peter discuss the number people using technology being the driving force that is causing more innovations, new ideas and ultimately new technologies.
- Peter tells the story of interviewing Marc Andreesen, an American entrepreneur, software engineer and co-creator of Netscape, the first web browser… and how, during that interview, he came up with the idea of the “interface moment,” which is the moment an exponentially growing technology becomes usable by entrepreneurs to generate massive revenue.
