ACKOWLEDGEMENTSThis series of slides is a summary of a more complete presentation shown in the second half of 2010 to a proactive and profitable client of mine which is moving forward out of its own vision, not out of despair. The following slides, without the original comments and the ensuing discussions, are little more than a skeleton but I hope they can be used to stimulate debate regarding the times to come for the media business.I want to show my deep gratitude for the many lessons taught to me by the many managers I have visited during the last few years, the list of which would be too long to mention. I also want to thank many other people from whom I have learned through personal conversations or through their presentations: Jeff Jarvis, John Paton, Juan Señor, Juan Antonio Giner, Rob Curley, Randy Covington, Dietmar Schantin, Grzegorz Piechota, Juan Varela, Andy Dickinson, Dan Gillmor… www.fernandosamaniego.com

  9. 9. Disruptive Innovations (cont.) (Also CD v. magnetic tapes; early automobiles v.Example: digital camera horse drawn vehicles; ice houses v. refrigerators…)Early digital cameras were unsophisticated, addressed to the low-endconsumer. Established companies ignored them.They evolved and incumbents reacted by designing sophisticated filmcameras addressed to premium buyers.They kept evolving and were adopted by pros. Cameraand film makers…were big losers Improving product, reducing costs, learning new tricks, was not the answer. Instead, understanding a completely new ecosystem was the way www.fernandosamaniego.com
