As Vivek Wadhwa just tweeted, it was indeed a riveting panel yesterday at the Milken Global Conference. Here’s the entire session, skim it for some great insights from three very smart guys: Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff, AOL Time Warner survivor Steve Case, and academic soothsayer Vivek himself.
Among the highlights: Benioff says we always overestimate what tech can do in the next year–and underestimate what it can do in the next decade. Case at one point calls me out on making a snarky comment about his AOL travails. And Wadhwa is put on the spot: He says Salesforce.com is about to get disrupted just as the firm disrupted the entire software industry, but would Wadhwa buy–or sell–Salesforce stock?
