Excerpt from article: 


Something deep is going on with information technology, something that goes well beyond the use of computers, social media, and commerce on the Internet. Business processes that once took place among human beings are now being executed electronically. They are taking place in an unseen domain that is strictly digital. On the surface, this shift doesn’t seem particularly consequential—it’s almost something we take for granted. But I believe it is causing a revolution no less important and dramatic than that of the railroads.


It is quietly creating a second economy, a digital one.

This is an interesting article. What does it mean that the second economy is automatic and invisible? We need to be mindful and attentive to our choices.

Big Bang Disruption: The Internet of Things Takes Off Gradually and then Suddenly | LATAM Scoop | Scoop.it

One of the main drivers of Big Bang Disruptors is the constantly improving price and performance of information technologies.  For years, computer processors, memory, and communications capacity have experienced regular, even predictable, growth that is nearly exponential.  Everything gets twice as fast and half as expensive every few years.
