THE MIND OF LLOYD
Hello everyone, and welcome the my world. I am Lloyd Miller II, and I am a Biochemistry and Music student at the Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville, Jamaica, who has his eyes set for great things. Here I will share my thoughts on different world events, share different proposals in mind and projects I am working on, and also give valuable information. And since I'm a fun-loving guy, I will share different videos, photos and links of interest from across the internet. Enjoy!
To me, the most exciting part of the Facebook/WhatsApp deal has nothing to do with the deal itself. Instead, I’m excited about the ramifications of such a deal. And I’m not talking about Facebook or WhatsApp here either. History will ultimately prove that deal genius or folly. But more importantly, I know that a deal like this has other people talking, thinking, and building.
The last group is key, but let me start with the first group. Once the fervor around the deal itself died down, we got a couple of compelling posts from the likes of Benedict Evans and riffing on it, John Lilly. Incidentally, both are now VCs. But neither started out that way, and both have long histories of solid thinking and writing.
Both understand that the Facebook/WhatsApp deal is simply the strongest signal yet that we’ve fully entered a new age in the world of computing where mobile is now the kingdom. And the $19 billion price tag simply shows that there isn’t yet a king.
Author doesn’t believe Facebook will be the one to do this. I think it will most likely be them and I think it’s one of the reasons why they shelled out so much money for this app.
