Mark Anderson’s 2015 Predictions
“No one does predictions like Mark Anderson, whose forecasts about the intersection of the economy and technology are closely followed in Silicon Valley.”
Piracy Vs. Crown Jewel Theft
At Forbes.com Mark discusses the impact of cyber espionage on the tech industry:
“In the last few years, we’ve seen a continued exponential increase in cyber attacks, with different purposes in mind: … listening to military communications, stealing customer IDs, and taking the greatest secrets held by corporations & governments – their “crown jewel” secrets.”
The most important economic prediction
of the decade
“$50/bbl should do it. … And since this will change almost everything in global economics, it seems worth sharing… I don’t think oil is ever coming back.”
– 7/12/14, Mark Anderson, SNS Global Report
The FiReStarters program is just one SNS Connection Hub, showcasing businesses with new and emerging technologies – nominated by trusted strategic investment SNS members – at SNS FiRe conferences & beyond. We believe these businesses are making strides in improving our world.

SNS looks at the future of everything in these core target areas of interest, from chip designs to high-performance computing, from cloud structure to wireless and software.
More Computing & Communications
Beginning with SNS Project Inkwell, the first global vendor consortium on appropriate technology in K-12, SNS has taken a deep look into creating the next model for modern education.
SNS has redefined global economics theory through an IP-centric view, with strong results in prediction success, from companies to countries. SNS provides a unique focus on finance subjects, including venture capital and technology funding, with additional attention to global equity markets.
More Economics & Finance
Perhaps the first team to unveil the Enron scandal, SNS has a long history of accurate predictions of oil pricing and energy outcomes, including alternative energy, energy markets, energy connection to climate change, and more.
SNS maintains a continuous awareness of the world we depend upon for survival, from the oceans to the atmosphere, from how we affect the environment to what technology can contribute to promote global environmental health.
These are coordinated, focused global efforts to improve the world through the appropriate application of technology. Most of these initiatives were seeded at the annual SNS FiRe conference, including INVNT/IP, SNS FiReFilms, SNS Project Inkwell, Nutritional Microanalysis, and more.
More Global Initiatives
The ongoing “fixing healthcare” discussion at SNS is focused on the question of how to repair a broken business model, generally seeking ways to bring providers and patients back into primary contact. This area also includes new innovations in healthcare solutions, from the Quantified Self to the new SNS field of Nutritional Microanalysis.
The SNS Pure Science channel focuses on research by members of the SNS community into pure science, including physics, climatology, space and ocean exploration, evolutionary theory, ethnology, and more.
