The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics around the investing world.

Today's topic is "Favor the Liberators," a theme that was featured in a recent piece in Wired on how to spot the future. The concept is fairly straightforward and involves recognizing scarcity and eliminating barriers to the free flow of goods. In the article, Wired referred to digital streaming as an illustration of the concept. David thinks both Zipcar and LinkedIn are possible ideas for playing this type of trend. In the case of the latter, contacts and job opportunities now seek out individuals, instead of the old way, which was characterized by individuals searching for relatively few opportunities.

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
