Mary Meeker's Entire Bummer PowerPoint on Her Internet Outlook

BoomTown is no fan of PowerPoint, but this one by longtime Morgan Stanley Internet and technology analyst Mary Meeker at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco yesterday is made worse by its depressing content.

Meeker, a veteran who was around for the last Web 1.0 meltdown, should know from grim. An inveterate numbers cruncher–I actually met her 15 years ago, while she was crunching a different set of numbers on AOL late into the night at her New York office–she pulls out a lot of tough ones here.

Still, as usual, from the typically forward-looking Meeker, there is hope eventually.

But let’s let her show you, via the presentation she made yesterday.
