Disruptive?

While we’re thinking about not falling in love with our schtick, I thought this was a good read: The Myth and Milleniallism of Disruptive Innovation. I think this is a good pushback to an idea about innovation to which it’s easy to get attached. One man’s disruptive innovation is another’s ego trip. Some things done in the name of creative destruction are more the latter than the former. I am wary of the tendency for innovation to be treated as a macho high-status game. And every process casts its own shadow.
