Mobile is eating the world

Back in August, Marc Andreessen (founder of Netscape and currently partner in Andreessen Horowitz investment firm) wrote an essay in the WSJ entitled, “Why Software Is Eating The World.” If you missed it, the essay described how software is, quite seriously, taking over every single industry. And if your industry hasn’t been transformed by software, it will be soon.

An excerpt:

…Today, the world’s largest bookseller, Amazon, is a software company…
…Today’s largest video service by number of subscribers is a software company: Netflix…
…Today’s dominant music companies are software companies, too: Apple’s iTunes, Spotify and Pandora…
…Today’s fastest growing entertainment companies are videogame makers
