my unanswered question: Mary Meeker's Latest Amazing Presentation About The Future Of Tech

Mary Meeker's Latest Amazing Presentation About The Future Of Tech

This is an institution of the internet... Brilliant presentation indeed!

however, sadly it does not still explain something pertinent, namely, given the ubiquitous nature of mobile (even in form of old symbian nokia, let alone the new android/iphone etc.).. and big % of populations worldwide of people that has access to internet and mobile services.. is it normal that we don't have visbility or hear what is the estimated percentage of people that 'transact' via ecommerce (online or mobile) channels? and if we know the typical transaction value, we can then surely talk 'business'...

is that the main reason why the whole market focus on things that are transient (although accepted) KPIs like site visits, eyeballs, market capitalisations etc.?

or am I asking a stupid question??


Quora is great but I asked this question weeks ago, but no decent and definitive answer:
Quora: What percentage of the online population makes transactions (pays for things)? Answer: http://qr.ae/onvX

Keep up the good work Mary, and congratulations in your new role!
