Ben Horowitz: Dinosaurs Not In Favor Of Being Eaten By Birds
What better way to kick off TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012, than to bring together Silicon Valley legend "Coach" Bill Campbell, Chairman of Intuit and Apple board member, with Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Ben Horowitz? One of the first questions Campbell brought up was this idea of "software eating the world." What that means, said Horowitz, is that there's increasing value as the tech industry is moving from hardware to software. We're already seeing this in cloud computing, and notably in consumer electronics where for years, companies based in Japan and Korea led the way. Now, as the value is moving to software, companies with access to content, software and hardware - like Apple, for example - are taking over. Technology, and specifically software, is now in a position to "eat every industry systematically," said Horowitz, leading him to quip "dinosaurs are not in favor of being eaten by birds," as to how the older competitors see this transition.
