Want to solve the energy problem ? Sweden recycles 96 % and needs more garbage, they use it for heat and electricty. They get paid to import trash.  
Compare that to the USA, where 35 % of all trash is being recycled.

Marc Andreessen on the age of context, er, the future of the tech industry

At +Rackspace Hosting we care deeply about where startups and the future is going, especially since so many of the technologies we use will require new kinds of cloud computing technologies.

For instance, how are sensors, wearable computers, big data, social data, and location data changing Silicon Valley business? We keep hearing big changes are ahead so we went and visited +Marc Andreessen, founder of Netscape to talk about the future of the tech industry. He's on the boards of HP, Facebook, and many others and is largely seen as one of the best investors on Sand Hill Road now. http://a16z.com is where you learn more about his VC firm, Andreessen Horowitz 

Some things we learned: "we are going to have a virtual overlay on the real world."

"All markets will liquify," (AirBNB liquified real estate, Uber liquified car travel).

He wants to fund a peer-to-peer drone-based delivery network. Anyone want to start a company?

More shortly, but I wanted to get this video up fast because it's so significant. Andreessen rarely grants video interviews.

"You are going to know your customer in very deep detail."

EU wants to build the world's most powerfull laser that destroys both nuclear waste & cancer. Experiments will start in 2017 and could take 20 years.

Do read the comments because the journalist is making a few mistakes.

Lockitron doorlock concept sells out first batch. Delivery ? Wait 5 months. It's like Kickstarter but you don't need Kickstarter, you need a good concept, a website and people who make things happen.

Kim Dotcom takes on Google and every other website that relies on advertisements. 
Megabox replaces the ads on the websites you visit and if you let him do that, you get your music for free. 

Not sure how that would work.
I'm guessing : view 10 ads, get free music for  like 1 hour ? 

If this thing goes mainstream, it could end up being very disruptive for a lot of companies because most of them rely on ads. 
If their website visitors aren't seeing the ads, it's gonna hurt the bottom line.
