What new products and technologies are going to take off? And which ideas are worth investing in? Kevin Rose is a serial entrepreneur and currently an investor with True Ventures. Kevin was an early investor in Twitter and Foursquare, and previously founded Digg.com along with other companies like Revision3, Milk, and North Technologies. We chat to Kevin about what ideas he's interested in, where he feels technology is heading, and why he won't be investing in VR.
What does it mean to be human? And what would be possible if you had technology hardwired into your mind?
