business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Washington Post has a piece by Steve Case, the founder some 30 years ago of America Online, that looks at the latest iteration of the internet, which he describes as the 'third wave."

"The third wave of the Internet is about to break," Case writes. "The opportunity is now shifting to integrating it into everyday life, in increasingly seamless and ubiquitous ways. These third-wave companies will take on some of the economy’s largest sectors: health care, education, transportation, energy, financial services, food and government services. These third-wave sectors — all now ripe for disruption — represent more than half of the U.S. economy."
