Andreessen talks with Swisher on Re/code Decode about bubbles, politics and parenting.
When I first came out here [Silicon Valley] I thought that I had missed all the excitement. I thought that the PC had happened and I thought that was it, and I thought that we were just going to play cleanup after the PC.
