The Kings

A decade ago, these were the technology kings. They drove developer and internet mindshare.

  • Microsoft
  • Yahoo
  • Sun
  • AOL
  • MySpace

Today, the new kings are:

  • Google
  • Apple
  • Facebook
  • Amazon
  • Twitter

It’s amazing how much can change in a decade. How many of today’s kings will have the legs to still be exciting us ten years from now?

  1. I don’t think the turnover is as complete as you make it out to be. Google was a giant ten years ago. Yahoo is perhaps even more relevant now than it was with respect to developer mindshare.
