A Short Few Years

October 7, 2010

I am reading an article from the Harvard Business Review of September-October 1997 called “Strategy and the New Economics of Information”, by Philip B.Evans and Thomas S.Wurster.  Within they discuss the fundamental shift in, well yea the economics of information.  This would now also be termed the democratization of information from among others Chris Anderson, author of ” The Long Tail”
There were two points however made me laugh in the article.  The first was a reference to how “Little electronic tablets are not going to replace” newspapers very soon and the second was how bank officials are not concerned as “people worry about the security of on-line transactions and that consumers trust banks more than they trust software companies.”
A short few years indeed.
