“We are in the middle of a dramatic and broad technological and economic shift in which software companies are poised to take over large swathes of the economy,” wrote Marc Andreessen in the Wall Street Journal.

He’s absolutely correct and I agree that over the next decade we will continue to see tectonic shifts in the way that companies produce, and people consume, goods and services. Much of this will be due to software, but enabling the software is the massive proliferation of semiconductors and connectivity. It really is becoming an always on, always connected world and software benefits from this. Well worth reading.
