  • Eric,

    Interesting point you make about intuitiveness.

    We just released a new AJAX based webapp where people can submit and collaborate on submitted ideas. Most of the functions in the in app don’t require clicking on a ’Submit’ button to submit the the user input. It is real-time input processing - much like Google Wave. Even though there is a clear indication that the user input has been processed, they still look for the submit button, and email us asking, ’where is the submit button?’ :) I think this will not be issue when RIA like Google Wave become more prevalent, but in the meantime there is a ’realization curve’ involved.

    Excellent presentation, by the way. Do you mind if I harvest (with proper credits) some of the slides for my presentation?

  • The first two bars represent barrier to entry.

    The third could just as well be on a separate slide. At the top, websites are generally intuitive. People learn skills on one site that they expect to be able to use when they arrive on another site. So the barrier to entry is generally pretty low. Applications are a different matter. There is some kind of a learning curve involved.

    As to the third bar, well, this is pure Clayton Christensen, a very smart professor from Harvard. For example, the fax is an example of incremental innovation - getting a piece of paper from A to B. But e-mail allows multiple people to work on the same doc. This is a disruptive innovation.

    Hope this helps.

  • Eric,

    I am afraid I don't quite understand the slide #40. Can you please elaborate?
