Mary Meeker web 2.0

Mary Meeker just gave a huge presentation about the current trends on the Internet at AllThingsD’s D10 conference.

Halfway through the presentation she showed attendees a gigantic list of the way people used to interact with the world — ranging from business meetings to diaries — and how technology has changed them.

It’s basically a compact list of some of the most innovative startups and pieces of technology available to the world right now.

We use cell phones and voice-over-IP instead of traditional phone lines.

The Facebook Timeline has replaced scrapbooks and photo albums.

Evernote is your all-purpose notebook. Throw away that pencil!

You now go to sites like One Kings Lane to find new furniture and home improvement goods.

Uber has made on-demand taxi services standard.
