In fact, the next stage could be the perfecting of the changes that have resulted with the digitization of life. Or the next stage could be a revolt to the revolution. I don’t mean a backlash or a protest against technology – no, that’ll be phase three when robotics and invasive, spying software, hackers and government intrusions force people to look for an alternate network.
Phase two will be disrupters to disrupters. For instance, Uber upends taxis now, just as Priceline reduces travel agents to order-taking. But what happens when there becomes competition to Google, Amazon, Twitter and others who seem like kings? Further, what happens when not just a competitor arises – but a new technology comes about to completely displace an existing one?
