Marc Andreessen is one of the more colorful and high-profile Silicon Valley venture capitalists. He’s a big man, who stands out in a room. Add to that the fact that he has a very much larger-than-life persona, both in-person and (when he’s active) on his Twitter account, and you have someone who provides much interest.
He is also, of course, a legendary entrepreneur and investor — his resume pretty much spans the arc of modern internet businesses. Andreessen has been keen to ride that wave, and espouse his theory about how the internet generally, and software as a focus, is changing everything in the world.
