The word “disruption” doesn’t articulate the phenomena we experience everyday.
The word “disruption” is defined as “Disturbance that interrupts an event, activity, or process.” This definition implies that the event, activity or process will continue after the interruption or disturbance passes.
However, that is simply not true. Digital Technology and disruptive innovation is changing the world, permanently. Things will never be the same.
Notice that I used the word “Dysruption,” I coined this term to expand the definition of disruption to reflect the fundamental and permanent change to the status quo which we know today. The word “Dysfunctional,” defined as “Not operating normally or properly,” provides the missing element when combined with the word “Disruption” to make the point that the affected event, activity or process. Taken together, the term “Dysruption” means a “Disturbance that fundamentally interrupts an even, activity, or process to such a degree that it will never operate normally (in the same way) again.”
You’ll find that this blog is a collection of notes, thoughts, links and general scratches on something that has become a bit of a professional obsession for me. I’m fascinated and enthralled with the digital future and innovation. This blog may turn it a book one day, but for now it’s just a place to have fun!
