Create the antidote

Innovations can only create lasting disruption when they create the antidote.

Napster inspired the shift from analog to digital. But it created more problems for the industry it entered, and it was gone.

AOL Instant Messenger changed the way we socialized on the internet. But when the internet went mobile, it couldn’t keep up, and it was gone.

TiVo fueled the shift from scheduled programming to anytime anywhere entertainment. But when cable companies rolled out DVRs, it eliminated features and stalled solutions. After On-Demand television came out, it couldn’t keep up, and it faded from relevancy.

There’s still plenty of room for tech that impacts. But it’ll never disrupt if it can’t solve a problem much better than the status quo they replace.

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable
    and all. But just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best
    in its field. Very good blog!

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. Wonderful blog you have here but I was curious about if you
    knew of any discussion boards that cover the
    same topics discussed in this article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I
    can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Appreciate it!

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
