Shomit Ghose in a guest post on Forbes:
So if maximum entropy has made hardware, software and networks as relevant and commoditized as steel or cement, what’s a budding entrepreneur to do? The answer is to focus on ventures in one of two areas: either in the monetization of data, or in providing the infrastructure to enable the monetization of data. Period.
These are exciting times for tech and data people. But I don’t think data is the only area that will show innovation and growth in the future (think education, healthcare, energy, etc.)
