“The people that are trying to architect the future while they deal with the current problem are the ones that are going to be the most successful. The ones that are so caught up in firefighting that they can’t think beyond next week are going to have the biggest problem because their competitors are going to find a business model that works better in this new paradigm, and they’re still going to be dealing with the old paradigm.” – Greg Milano
