This young man, Tony Royster jr., is simply amazing. I found it very hard to sit still here.
The following is a very quick translation of an op-ed I wrote for Aftenposten, Norway’s largest serious newspaper. The occasion is that Clayton Christensen is coming to speak here on January 24, and I am emceeing the event. The argument shouldn’t be news to anyone (I hope), but the examples may be. The companies are all Norwegian, so forgive me if you don’t get the reference (Norsk Data, for instance, was a minicomputer company much like Prime, Digital or Data General, and lost out to PCs much like they did.)
Predictions is dime-a-dozen these days – Ed Felten offers up a set of predictions I really like. So rather than create my own, I will endorse this list and be done with it….
PS: My favorite: The return of push technology. Just the thing for my cellphone, content someone thinks I might like….
