Jim Carroll blogged this on January 4th: Why “Bandwagon Innovation” Doesn’t Work. Carroll states very succinctly what is wrong with bandwagonny innovation ideas (including Web 2.0 ideas as they are commonly approached). He is a futurist whose primary interest is innovation; he is not anti-tech at all. His points about innovation bandwagons have to do with their shallowness and facileness. His post was blogged on ACRLog on Monday, and a friend at work just showed it to me.
It’s really wonderful when someone has a clear and simple insight that cuts through layers of popular bulldoody.
