Conferences, the future of.…and confirming evidence

Read­ing twit­ter and blogs on the DLD and Davos con­fer­ences I am won­der­ing about the cor­re­la­tions between peo­ple look­ing into the future and the future itself. To be more pre­cise: At DLD in Munich Ashish Patel of Intel, Morten Lund, Simon Lev­ene of Accel and Philipp Freise of KKR dis­cussed the future of invest­ing. The panel was very enter­tain­ing (thanks to host Mar­tin Varsavsky) and inspir­ing because of the peo­ple, but not because of new find­ings and/or dar­ing pre­dic­tions. Most of the con­tents on con­fer­ences you also could read in news­pa­pers, blogs etc. Isn’t there too much of con­firm­ing evi­dence? Espe­cial­ly when a cer­tain breed sits togeth­er as is the case at every conference?
