Just read an article on clean tech, including a couple of quotes by Kleiner Perkins’ John Doerr suggesting that
“Remember the Internet? Green tech is bigger… This could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century”
“Energy is the mother of all markets”.
Well, if Energy is the mother of all markets…who would be the father of all markets?
The Human Brain, perhaps?
So, I may both agree and disagree with John Doerr: yes, clean tech should be bigger than the Internet, and perhaps the biggest economic opportunity in the next 10-15 years…but BrainTech, technologies aimed at helping our brains be more productive and sustainable throughout their lifespans, may become the biggest opportunity of the 21st century. We’ll see.
