  • The technology of the last few decades probably wouldn’t hack it - stretching current capabilitis

  • Need a new Platform to build on to take us forward

  • Falling cost of storage - TB 1969

  • iPod 2007 - $160 TB x 2

  • Stand alone - Web 1.0 - dotcom - eyeballs

  • Web 2.0 - mixing - participating

  • Describe what the curve means (without chasm) - ask where they think we are

  • cost/risk follow the leaders - flat screen TVs

  • To those with the technology not always obvious why/how things get adopted

  • Hers a fairy old example.....








  • Back to the curve - explain the phenomenon of the Chasm - stuff that gets early adopted but doesn’t take off - but why?

  • Some examples here - Betamax / Hydrogen Cars / Resistance......

  • Remember mini-discs

  • mp3 to now

  • itunes made it easy!

  • Web 2.0 - mashup

  • Enabled by technology...

  • Computing power manufactured in next 2 years will be double ALL that has been build up to now!

  • Low cost comodity H/W made Google possible

  • Seeing architectures emerging....

  • the ability to rent power & storage from ‘out there’ at a fraction of the cost of building and maintaining your own.
