Pano says: A dramatic shift is taking place in Software.
Market says: The great tide is turning away from computers running proprietary software to Open Source units.
Consumers say: We are escaping the closed garden Windows-powered machines in droves during the past few years, because we like to be free…
And although our good friend Steve led the charge with Apple driving a wedge into the Wintel monopoly — it was You and all the Brain Software developers who did it.
And then Google jumped in the bandwagon and it’s open source and crowd sourced & developed software named Android operating system, is what’s really killing Microsoft.
Take this numbers next as numerical proof. Since Q4 2010, combined shipments of tablets and smartphones enabled with open source software, have exceeded the number of all PCs shipped. Not just Wintel PCs but all computer boxes combined.
It’s the will of the masses yearning to be free. And that the quality of open source software is far greater and it’s debugging and resilience awesome. This constitutes the biggest trend for next year.
And this trend shows no sign of reversing. Instead it is accelerating massively with all the new tech enhancements and soft code iterations.
After all — all signs point to Rome…
“Rome” as in the people’s democratic republic of Innovative Software.
So here are Pano’s five top Internet & Mobile Smart Brain Trends for 2013:
- Internet Rocks: User data shows there are 2.4 billion Internet users worldwide, a number that’s still growing 8% per annum.
- Slow phones Rule: There are 1.1 billion smartphone subscribers worldwide. Representing just 17% of the global cellphone market.
- Network end slow devises are all pervasive: All of 29% of adults in the USA now own either a tablet or an e-reader.
- Mobile Internet Rises: Mobile devices now account for 13% of worldwide Internet traffic, up from 4% in 2010.
- Mob-Ad and Mob-App Grows: Mobile advertising revenue has grown at an annual rate of 129% since 2008, and now tops $19 billion. Similarly Mobile Apps are rising faster than ever.
The trends go on to show that smart crowd sourced software and simply smart network end devices and seamless ubiquitous connectivity are the leading trends.
They in turn prove the old Panoism and Pano’s Internet Express theory, that the complete re-imagination of everything is done every seven years.
A Seven Year itch in the making…
So we need to Innovate frequently in order to not be left behind…
And just to prove this point — take as an example a mobile App called Waze. Mobile traffic app Waze has been adding users faster than all GPS makers combined have sold personal navigation units, and it’s been that way since the beginning of 2012.
And all new mobile Apps have grown by more than 300% per year and this is unprecedented….
Same as the growth of some new sites.

Go ahead and start in one of our Start Up weekends…
Take advantage of our Innovation Start Up Master Class offered throughout the world.
Dr Pano Kroko is offering again his famous Innovation Class in leading Universities across the Globe for the New Year. We are starting from China’s Tsinghua University in Beijing, this January and at the Imperial in London and then in Oxford and Cambridge — immediately following all within February. Then we are off to India, Africa, and Latin America before we circle back to the US and UK…
This is the world’s best Innovation Seminar and after the success of the more than 200 Start Up companies that were built following the process and spawned from within the Master Class of Dr Kroko over the last ten years – we know You can do it too. The Method has been developed through a grant from the Environmental Parliament to the Environmental University and it’s an ongoing Innovation for solving the Big problems Enterprise Solution. It’s software for the mind and for action. The leading lights Environmental University Professors and Dr Kroko have been working the last few years in the seeding, venture and incubation of Innovation in our Clean Tech, Green Tech and Green Energy marketplace in Cambridge where we maintain an active incubator.
Time to INNOVATE.
Just from Dr Kroko’s Master Class on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, for the Big Problem solutions, you can have your chance to create your dreams and put the seeds in the ground for a better tomorrow. It is no accident that more than 50 exits were initiated from these companies and this ratio beats all the VC records in the world. One in four companies spawned through Dr Kroko’s Master Start Up Weekend Class experienced a positive financial exit towards a Strategic, Investor Syndicate, or Public Offering…
So join us this coming New Year for all the Green Tech and traditional Tech Innovation you can stomach, in one of Dr Kroko’s seminars in the US or Europe, in China or India, and in Africa or Latin America.
This Master Class might be your ticket for a space ride.
Find a way to claim your space.
