Flip Test...

"Let's say the world has only e-books, then someone introduces this technology called 'paper'. It's cheap, portable, lasts essentially forever, and requires no batteries. You can't write over it once it's been written on, but you buy more very cheaply. Wouldn't that technology come to dominate the market?"

Those are of course not my words, while reading Andrew McAfee, I came across this cool concept of flip test. And that's not the thing he wanted to discuss in that blog. He takes this discussion further to compare old generation collaboration technologies (email, chat, cellphones...) with the new generation collaboration technologies (blogs, wiki etc). Interesting read!

There is always some opposition to any new technology or disruption while many people (old economy thoughts) oppose new adoption there are always people (new economy thoughts) who advocate for change or new additions. One should be able to view things from the top, understand all the perspectives and then evaluate all the pros and cons to take a decision which is good for all. I like writers (especially fiction writers) a lot for that matter.
