Wired 10.09: Start: Andreessen Restarts
"What’s next for the technology industry?
[Andreessen:] It’s rebuilding. You saw a very similar boom-bust-boom in the PC industry, which recovered in the 1990s as the technology hit critical mass. Intel shipped the 386, and Microsoft shipped Windows 3.0. The same thing will happen here. All of the technology underneath the Internet is hitting critical mass, at the exact point when people expect nothing. That’s a prescription for the next boom. But I don’t know when."
