Marc Andreessen, co-founder, Andreessen Horowitz, and Reid Hoffman, partner, Greylock (Code Conference 2017) | Listen Notes


Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Marc Andreessen and Greylock partner Reid Hoffman talk with Recode's Kara Swisher about where innovation, corporate responsibility and politics in Silicon Valley are heading. Andreessen pushes back on the idea that mainstream news outlets have more share of the truth than Breitbart News, and Hoffman discusses his progressive political tech initiative Win the Future, which so far has raised "millions" of dollars. Andreessen says his firm is actively investing in bringing tech into three highly regulated and slowly growing segments of the economy — health care, education and construction — while Hoffman is interested in businesses with network effects. They also discuss the impact of new technologies like robots and autonomous vehicles on the world's jobs, and why completely new industries might be created as a result of this technological change.
