Death by a thousand cuts: The next big disruption
Date: 21 May 2008
Previous generations of disrupters were singular giants that swept established players from the game board with a foul sweep. The Amazon giant disrupted bookstores, the Apple iTunes giant (and a few buddies) took down CD stores and the Gang of Four (Google / Apple / Microsoft / Facebook) have negated telecoms to be nothing more than dumb pipes.
