Several changes to the combinatorial innovation slide: The first curve (building blocks) spawns the second (Disruptive scenarios). The third curve (in the middle) is spawned by the potential for convergence within the first two curves that drives a major shift in the economic paradigm (away from Capitalism and towards a hybrid capitalism/collaborative economy model). Curve three is discussed at length in a fascinating new book by Jeremy Rifkin titled "The Zero Marginal Cost Society".
