6:43 am
what you think will be the next big thing that we're going to see changed? >> the mobile we've is all about what happens when you have five billion people walking around the plan wet intelligent smart phones and to a certain degree, five billion people walking around with intelligent tablet computers. most people haven't factored this in but there is a point when most everybody on the planet that can read has a dab let computer, then everything we have dematerializes to software. perhaps the most interesting stress the media industry, newspapers, magazines, books, picture books, textbooks and the education industry that is so dependent upon media and both of those are ready for a massive transformation during the coming decade. >> with a lot of that comes a shift in jobs. you take a very positive spin on that or twist to that that jobs will be shifting, things

6:45 am
of pounds of gasoline and millions of hours of person time to do things. it is now possible to create software programs that will do those thing as a million times more efficiently. if you are the person that designs the software program or markets it or distributes it or refines it or supports it, you are in a booming growth industry. if you are going to school to figure out how to do the same thing that people have been doing for a hundred years, then you are probably on the side that will be edited out and your life wouldn't be so much fun. >> you are well known in the social circuits. you have had huge success with microstrategy. i compare you in my mind to a local mark zuckerberg. what is it like -- when did you first realize i have done this? i feel very successful? >> you know, one of the most thrilling things is when you bring your employees together,
