The sage venture capitalist Fred Wilson looks back at his predictions for 2017 — and what really happened — and ahead to what he foresees for 2018. Three macro themes dominated the past year in tech, he says: The breakout of crypto/blockchain, the beginning of the end of white male dominance, and the backlash against tech. Wilson sketches the likely narrative of the next 30 years: “Human beings don’t want to be controlled by machines. And we are increasingly being controlled by machines.” Meanwhile, for 2018, Wilson predicts more tech IPOs, even as mega-funds like Softbank make it easier for big tech companies to stay private by raising huge rounds.Items-Worth-Reading-on-Social-Media-Week-1
