Disruption: Disruptors and the Disrupted

An exploration of the concept of disruption in general. Is disruption a goal, or is it the means to achieve a goal. How many disruptors are actually interested in providing something of value to their “customers”, and how many disruptors are simply pandering to the crowd to enrich themselves.

Is the disruption caused by the Trump administration different in kind or different in degree from the disruption in the commercial sector brought about by big tech companies like Uber or Airbnb? Or is it the same – disruption is disruption?

Disruption is great if you’re the disruptor, kinda sucks if you’re the disrupted.
