Relevant, informative and inspiring post, I definitely need this kind of ideas. The graph is well explained. Thank you for providing such an intelligent thoughts.

I read your previous article and it was spot on. This is a great article also. GigaOM also did a great article with an infographic on "How Technology is Changing Business." It discusses the issues businesses are having such as which changes are impacting their business the most, etc. While there is not any overlap between their responses which are related to technology's impact and those in your article, the take away I get from both articles is that many of the things being discussed in the political sphere are not relevant to most businesses. Thanks for another good article.
