Humanity is going mobile first


By 2020, 90 percent of the world’s population who are over 6 years old will have a mobile phone, and many of them will be watching a lot of video on their devices […] In 2012, the UN estimated that there would be some 7.717 billion people on Earth by 2020, with 59.4% of them in Asia. […] The report estimates that smartphone subscriptions are expected to top 6.1 billion by 2020, with China adding over 450 million mobile subscriptions in the period up to 2020. […] predicts that mobile video traffic will increase tenfold and constitute 55 percent of all mobile data traffic by 2020, followed by social networking apps at 15%, web browsing at 5%, and audio at 2%.


Rekrutacja według Paula Grahama

We have three general suggestions about hiring: (a) don’t do it if you can avoid it, (b) pay people with equity rather than salary, not just to save money, but because you want the kind of people who are committed enough to prefer that, and (c) only hire people who are either going to write code or go out and get users, because those are the only things you need at first.
