  2. 2. technology. This took place in 2006, it’s really interesting to see how many ideaswere brought up and how many have actually been implemented in 2012. Take apeek and let me know if you recognize the same as I.The Net’s next phaseWhat’s on the way? Some of the most important playersin tech talk it over at Fortune’s Powerful WomenSummit. PostsBy Patricia Sellers, Fortune editor-at-largeNovember 7 2006: 11:28 AM EST Ways to Obtain Money Fast With The Use Of The Internet While At Home(Fortune Magazine) — In early October, at Fortune‘s annual Most Powerful Women Summit, blogqueen Arianna Huffington, editor of the Huffington Post, led a panel called Understanding theInternet’s Future, withMorgan Stanley (Charts) Internet analyst Mary Meeker, Motorola chief Tips in Increasing Motivationtechnology officer Padmasree Warrior, and Marissa Mayer, Google’s vice president in charge ofsearch products and user experience. Though summit sessions are off the record, these Tips in Achieving Success in Lifepanelists agreed to let us share excerpts from their lively conversation.HUFFINGTON: You may not know that occasionally in a dry suit Marissa Mayer The Long Wait Is Over, Let The Games Begin! Baseball Is Finally Here, YES!snorkels off the coast of Iceland. And I’m delighted to have Padma Warrior herebecause I’m not on many panels where 50 percent of the women have accents. Sheruns a major operation. Twenty-six thousand engineers at Motorola (Charts) report Improving The Community Withto her. Padma, I was at a conference recently where Bill Gates talked about a “reality Entrepreneursacquisition device” that would tell us, for instance, the best restaurants, where ourfriends have eaten recently. What are you doing about this device?WARRIOR: The Internet is still in phase two. Phase three will be about making it pervasive, whereeverybody in the world has access to it. To do that, there’s going to be a different kind of Get Started Now!device. [She holds up a cell phone.] At Motorola we call this “the device formerly known as the *Emailcellphone.” In the next ten years the Internet will follow you. It’ll be in your pocket, in yourpurse, on you. start nowHUFFINGTON: Whatever products Google (Charts) is developing, they areincorporating a 60 Percent to 70 percent failure rate. I find that utterly fascinating.Talk about that culture and how that translates into our lives.MAYER: As we’ve grown, one of our challenges has been, How can we continue to innovate? Wehave a theory around failing fast. If you assume that one in five things you do will turn out to bereally successful, and maybe two of five will be moderately successful, and the other two willlanguish, you want to do a lot of things. It’s all about being agile. Most of the teams at Googleare three to ten people. Five people launched Google News. About five people launched GoogleToolbar. They operate like small companies inside the large company. Google is a lot likemanaging a VC firm, because you’re placing bets on different teams. Our organization mirrorsthe Internet. It looks more like a network than a hierarchy.HUFFINGTON Mary, of all the different trends, what do you think is going to be themost impactful?MEEKER: I’m never good at one, but I’ll throw out a few. Mobile is a really big idea. The reality isthat the first computing experience for the majority of the world in the next two or three yearswill be on a mobile device. In 2006, 25 percent of the two billion mobile phones in use will beeither 2.5g or 3g phones, which means that they’re broadband-enabled. The mobile market iskind of where the broadband market was two or three years ago. If we look at data-servicesglobal revenue for the mobile market today, it’s a $70 billion market. That’s really big. And if welook at just the personalized ringtone, Screensaver, music part of the business, that’s a $20billion business globally – equal in size to the online global advertising market. That’s equal in sizeto Yahoo plus Google plus MSN plus iVillage, etc.Video is also really exciting. One of the things I love about search engines is you get greatsatisfaction – except when you search for video. The number of times you search for and can’tget what you want is stunning to me. That’s the opportunity. By our observation, half of all converted by
  3. 3. Internet traffic is peer-to-peer file sharing. Most of that is video. Most is illegal, and most isunmonetized. That’s a big opportunity.The third thing – and then I’ll shut up: China has become the largest user of technologyproducts and services in the world based on number of users. India will be the third-largestmarket some time in the next five years. When I started focusing on the technology marketmore than 15 years ago, I could go to Silicon Valley to figure out what’s going on. Now youhave to go everywhere.HUFFINGTON: I know there are plenty of people in the audience from the traditionalmedia, and hearing Mary talk must be scary. I find this whole fear factor – thatthey’re going to be extinct – completely unjustified. Remember that over 60 percentof people still don’t get their news or magazine information online. Only about 5percent of advertising is online. I find the whole print vs. online debate obsolete. It’sa little like the old Ginger vs. Mary Ann argument. I say, Let’s have a three-way.LISA GERSH, president of Oxygen Media: It’s not the technology that’s challenging traditionalmedia. It’s the users. They’re going to consume it where they want to consume it. We look at itas an opportunity.WARRIOR: It’s a huge opportunity. Think about what happened with ringtones. When themobile industry launched ringtones, I didn’t think anyone would pay a dollar for two lines of asong.MEEKER: That’s probably a $5 billion business.WARRIOR: We made $2 billion providing ringtones to service providers. It’s interesting thatpeople will pay $2 now to get two lines of a song to play when their phone rings, but they resistpaying 99 cents for a full song on their PC or MP3 player. Why? Because it’s personalizing thedevice. It makes a statement about who you are. Think about how to do that with video.ANN MOORE, CEO of Time Inc.: Well, speaking on behalf of old media, one of the things thatheld us back was fear of cannibalization, because we had these $5 billion businesses to protect.What I’ve learned is that once we don’t fear cannibalization, real brands are going to be veryviable online. We’re making substantial money already.ANNE-MARIE SLAUGHTER, dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and InternationalAffairs, Princeton University: How limited are we going to be by the speed of our thumbs? Areyou going to be able to talk to your phone?WARRIOR: We just launched a device in China, where text messaging isn’t possible becausethere are 3,000 Chinese characters. So we invented finger-writing recognition. With your fingeryou can write any Chinese character, and the device recognizes it. It’s the fastest-selling device inChina.In India we’re adding five million subscribers – like connecting all of Denmark every month – witha new low-cost device. Most people cannot read and write, so we went to an icon-basedbrowser. As for the thumb typing, it depends on the generation. I have a 13-year-old son whotypes faster with his two thumbs than with his fingers on a PC. One of the things he said to mewas, “Mom, why do you watch TV? It doesn’t do anything with you. It just sits there.” Thatgeneration thinks very differently than we do.In China mobile romance is a huge business. People pay $2 a day for online dating on a mobiledevice. You put your profile on the Web, and you get an alert when somebody who matchesyour profile is near you at a party. You can text-message them. The statistics say that one inevery six messages results in a date. They’re bringing on 250,000 subscribers a month on thisservice. There’s something called text flirtation going on at parties.JULIET FLINT, partner, Kleiner Perkins: How are Google and Motorola thinking about the processof innovation in China and India?MAYER: We’ve been rolling out development centers all over the world for this exact reason. Wehave Tokyo, Beijing, Zurich, Bangalore, Brazil, because we know that innovation is going to comefrom all over. We’ve also been making more acquisitions.WARRIOR: We have to think very differently about the next ten years. Today about 2.5 billionpeople are connected on a mobile service. There are four billion people waiting to be connected.About a quarter of them are in India and China. About half of them are in countries like Brazil,Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.The kinds of things they will need are very different. We’ve had centers in China, India, Eastern converted by
  4. 4. Europe – Russia, Poland – Singapore and Malaysia for a number of years. We’ve started openingresearch labs in China and India. We also fund internal startups to work with outside startups.That’s the model most companies will have to go to in the next ten years. The Internet helpsyou do that because it flattens the equation of what’s inside and what’s outside.HUFFINGTON: What is the dark side of the Internet?MEEKER: The dark side is there are two billion users of mobile phones around the world. That willgrow to three billion in the next five years, and almost every phone will have a video camera.There will be no privacy for anyone, almost anytime.MARYLEE SACHS, chairman, U.S., Hill & Knowlton: What do you think of the future of InternetProtocol TV?MAYER: It means there will be variable formats, not just 30-minute and hour-long shows.Basically you’ll have a channel that’s programmed just for you. If consumers are consuming TVthat way, advertisers will follow.This is another example of the intensive studies that take place in order to make progress andimprove a product. Ever thinking of the future is imperative to continuously take a thought tohigher heights.Everyone has an opinion or like to speak about a particular topic.
