Internet trends

Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers (KPCB) have released their 2013 internet trends report. As one of Silicon Valley's premier technology venture capital companies they always have interesting information to share. I have included some of my favourite slides below. The stats regarding technology usage in China are amazing.

The US is dominant in technology with the leading software and hardware companies but the US also dominates in websites with 8 of the top 10 most visited properties worldwide.

In China the amount of time spent on mobile and TV spent is pretty close. Mobiles are the TV for a lot of people in China!

Alibaba which is 24% owned by Yahoo (a reason we have shares) in our opinion has the potential to become one of the largest companies in the world. It is a company of which most of us have never heard but sales on their sites Taobao and Tmall are greater than Amazon and Ebay combined and growing much faster!
