Mary Meeker, the former Morgan Stanley analyst and current Kleiner Perkins investor, has built a personal franchise around her annual Internet trends report. She delivered her latest at the Code Conference this morning.
Meeker and her team have a knack for pulling together data that speaks to both the specificity of what’s happening right now and how it fits into the larger context of the past and present.
This time around, Kleiner Perkins built a site for the reports, which date back to 2001, available here.
On the docket for 2014:
- Updates on Internet and mobile usage, combined with Meeker’s optimism about online advertising opportunities.
- Some public-valuation commentary — Meeker thinks things in tech are not as bubblicious now as they’ve been in the past.
- Observations about the opportunities to analyze data brought in by sensors.
- Numbers about the shift to TV watching that’s more social, personalized and on-demand.
- China trends.
