The term "Disruptive Technology" is increasingly used in this era of multiple technology driven market inflections. Most of the time it is tiresome (albeit necessary) to define terms used in written communication. Thus, it is great to have services such as answers.com and Wikipedia that simply take the tedium out of this process. For instance, answers.com has a great starting point in the form of a definiton for "Disruptive Technology". Even better, if I feel its definition is lacking I can simply jump ahead to one of its encyclopedic sources (such as Wikipedia) and then extend the subject in question with my input. If my contribution is lacking the system will ultimately wash it out, on the other hand if it is deemed tangible then the contribution will stay in place and provide a base for additional contributions). Great!
Information and knowledge accessibility are gradually setting the foundation for monumental inflections across all industries (nautrally, IT will provide ample propulsion).
