    The book had lots of good content. An example, "Blur requires that we construct organizational structures that are designed for adaptability, not efficiency." is relative to my thoughts around Agile structures vs more Lean structures in organizations. The biggest problem is the book feels dated. Perhaps there is a newer, updated version with some more modern samples. It was a quick read that gave value despite being outdated.

    This was one of the first books on the concept of a connected economy I cherish my copy now as it was a small run book released by Ernst and Young and it is still a very good book to dip back into. Indeed, it was way ahead of its time and most of its points are only noe becoming very real through the social media / social marketing / semantic web spaces

    This book is probably becoming a little dated now (who is this Netscape company again?). Unfortunately for this reason it doesn't have the impact it probably did back around the time of the dot com boom. Many of the concepts and ideas which were probably revolutionary at the time are now widely accepted and some are likewise ridiculed. The book does illustrate how fast technology changes and how rapidly we have evolved in such a short time. In that respect its concept of 'Blur' rings true yet I w This book is probably becoming a little dated now (who is this Netscape company again?). Unfortunately for this reason it doesn't have the impact it probably did back around the time of the dot com boom. Many of the concepts and ideas which were probably revolutionary at the time are now widely accepted and some are likewise ridiculed. The book does illustrate how fast technology changes and how rapidly we have evolved in such a short time. In that respect its concept of 'Blur' rings true yet I wouldn't recommend it highly to people looking to gain and insight into where technology is heading. In summary this book is now probably more about history than the future. The world has changed and many of the concepts delivered by the book are now mainstream and perhaps in some respects antiquated. For this reason I can't recommend it to people looking to gain insight into the continuing digital revolution yet it does hold some interest when seeking to examine what was predicted and what eventuated.

    I remember being given a copy of this in 1999 and tucking it into my laptop case for a cross-country flight. Oops, distraction and suddenly it's 2015 and still sitting in the pile. It was probably a needed kick in the pants at the time for anybody mired in "this is how things are done" paradigms and practices - less so for those of us already in the trenches, who would've simply seen a whole bunch of affirmation, interspersed with wild-eyed speculation (really, personal securitization?) and a bi I remember being given a copy of this in 1999 and tucking it into my laptop case for a cross-country flight.

Good core concepts, without fully addressing opposing market realities - borne out by just how few example companies/products/services aren't already long-since footnotes.

    I was working at Ernst and Young Consulting Services when this book came out. Fresh out of graduate school and a new bird to the global management consulting world, this book helped me understand the "new" changes happening around me. This book provided a great new perspective, one that was needed, in the late nineties. I was working at Ernst and Young Consulting Services when this book came out.
