VR, innovation, NetworkFX etc. Strong interview. Wasn't expecting to hear that interesting analysis of virtual reality, but given the venue (CES) maybe appropriate. One critique of CL is that in the process of standardizing technology, it makes it harder for disruptive start-ups to succeed. So possibly dampening innovation on the one end, but then via its subsidiary NewtorkFX selling it on the other, as with PKI security. Curious model.
