This article (linked below) is so wrong:

- because the assumption that consumer focused apps can't be transformative for society is just plain wrong; and
- because you cannot look at innovation in terms of isolated tools.

Looked at in isolation, Tumblr is not transformative, for example. But I think we can all agree that online media platforms (including Tumblr) are transformative, in that they're giving everyone their own printing press and ways to make money.

Innovation is cumulative, with many different components getting recombined into a greater whole. This has never been more true than on the Web.
