The Pattern of Disruption: AirBnB

Major industry players like dismissed AirBnB and sometimes even say things like this: “Quite honestly, I had to google what [Airbnb] actually means, which shows you how much we pay attention to it,” “It’s a gnat on the dog’s tuchus. “It might itch, but it’s not a game changer” and “I think it’s serving people who didn’t travel because they were scared, or couldn’t afford it, or use it because it’s an antidote to loneliness.”

I like this a lot. Not just the quote here, but the entire sentiment. Also, everyone seems to be re-reading Christiansen right now. What’s up with that?
