the death of the PC webThis was taken as the Google hym sheet and was a slight exageration but today it seems like its heading for fact.

  • The rate of growth is speeding up – 9 years AOL, 9 months facebook, and 9 days Draw something.
  • Instagram today – 13 employees, 25 million users, Market cap $1 Billion.
