Charlie Rose Discusses Disruptive Technology

This video features Charlie Rose interviewing of John Doer, a partner at the VC firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Doer talks about how we are on the cusp of a 3rd great wave of innovation. The first wave being the microchip and personal computer. The second wave was the Internet and web browser. The third wave, as he describes it, is mobile, social, and new kinds of commerce. Doer is a compelling figure because as a Silicon Valley VC executive he has been involved with many of these breakthrough technologies at their inception. Most notably he talks about the 100 million dollar iFund they sponsored to spur innovation for the development of Apps. It is a 30 minute video, but well worth the watch.

Watch the video.
