On Wednesday, May 30, at D10, the Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference that debuted in 2003, venture capitalist Mary Meeker kicked off the day’s session with her annual Internet trends report showing great potential for mobile advertising but a dismal future for print, according to Forbes. The conference ran May 29-31 in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., and besides Meeker, included speakers like Apple CEO Tim Cook and Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek.

Meeker’s mobile-dominated trend presentation, which noted that there were 2.3 billion Internet users worldwide in 2011 and that 29 percent of Americans own a tablet computer or e-reader, also included a chart that should “scare the hell out of print media,” Poynter noted.
