After Social Networks, what next?

This is an interesting Guardian report on an event hosted by the Said Business School in Oxford on Monday night. Some US entreprenuers spoke to a packed house with speakers including top execs from Paypal, Google, LinkedIn and Twitter.

‘Ram Shriram, a founding board member of Google and one of the search giant’s first investors, pointed discussion in a different direction. “Combining social and mobile – there is a new wave of oppportunities coming up, a growth of users, so mobile internet is clearly the next major computing cycle. And this time this didn’t start in the US, but in Asia and Europe from where it is going to the US,” he said.’
