Hey We Know How to Be Disruptive! We Invented It!

There’s a lot of talk these days in the  media about being disruptive.  Disruptive  meaning changing the world through technology and digital product invention.    Amazingly a lot of the  young tech, and marketing  geniuses I currently admire  wear  the same long-shaggy haired  looks, baggyy jeans and granny glasses  as some of my friends did during my college days in the 1970s.

Being disruptive is who we are as Americans.   Back in the 1960s and  1970s  thousands of baby boomers  took to the streets to demand civil rights and change America’ landscape  racially and economically.   Still other boomers, tinkered with the new technology while in their garages and dorm rooms  –  Bill Gates, Steven Case and the  Steve Jobs –  inventing products that changed the techno-eco landscape and the  way the world connects and communicates  forever.

Today’s revolution involves  hundreds of  young developers and inventors who want to make the world a better place.   Many of them  are the subject of mainstream media focus but  baby boomers still have a place in this techno-eco revolution  – we invented it.
