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?
