I also cite the excellent work of for their ideas in framing up this perspective.
"We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us."
This is particularly true in today's headlong flight to the digital enterprise.
To paraphrase Gibson, the digital enterprise is already here, just not evenly distributed.
Again, IMHO the washouts won't be due to a skill deficit, but from a pernicious leadership vacuum.
Email is dead, long live email. If many announcements were made in 2014 regarding to collaboration solutions, I guess few people had predicted that the rock star of the year would be the good old email we’ve been trying to eradicate for the last 8 years.…
Yesterday, I went to think tank event in Palo Alto on self-driving cars, at SVForum with experts from all over tech, auto, and investment space, it was concluded by most that self-driving cars will start to roll out in 5-10 years. Car sharing and ride sharing is teaching us, we don't need to "own" cars to get where we need to go, this paves the road, for autonomous vehicles to enter society.
Here's an (in)complete list of who's disrupted:
-Taxis compete with Uber, Google, Apple self-driving cars. Ride sharing was just the first blow.
-Ride sharing drivers at Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, BlaBlaCar will be disrupted as autonomous cars do a safer job at lower cost.
-Local couriers, like TaskRabbit, Instacart and bike messengers will be impacted.
-Mid range and long range transportation and delivery services would be impacted as local delivery becomes automated.
-Retailers may see a change in foot traffic as people order goods to be delivered to their homes by driverless cars.
-Auto and life insurance should be impacted, due to fewer accidents and the introduction of per-mile-based insurance.
-Paramedics may be impacted if victims choose self-driving cars to whisk them to ER for less than severe injuries.
-Car ownership could dwindle. Self-driving cars means fewer cars will be needed, as they’re efficiently routed as needed.
-Airbnb may benefits as urban areas convert garage spaces into living areas for short term stays.
-The parking industry could suffer, as lots are converted to other uses.
-Parking fines and local taxes could dwindle with fewer cars on road and robotic efficiency.
-Radio and podcasts could become less popular, as people play video games and watch videos in the self-driving rides.
-Short distance airlines could be suffer, as people choose to take a relaxing trip in a mobile living room.
-Communities or attractions not connected by rail could prosper as people easily travel there for business or pleasure.
-Auto repair could be impacted as self-driving cars automatically head for maintenance without the driver or owner present.
-Auto manufacturers are disrupted, as people use ride-sharing apps to summon vehicles on demand, in lieu of ownership.
-Hotels and motels could be affected as families are able to sleep in the comfort of a self-driven vehicle on the way to their destination.
Leave a comment, below, on who else might be disrupted.
It will be simultaneously held in San Francisco, Santa Monica, Houston, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, New York, Silicon Valley, Atlanta, Seattle using collaborative tools!
The survey is one of the most vital resources we have to determine value, ROI, and get #cmgr teams what they need to succeed. I'm also involved this year and will be writing up what's uncovered on ZDNet and elsewhere. #socbiz
