First, go read this.
Think about it. What Paul Graham describes is The Disruptor’s Dilemma – that is, The Innovator’s Dilemma but from the point of view of the disruptor.
Take search, for example. The Google search engine has become a feature-bloated high-end machine. A disruptor would enter with a simpler, smaller, “low-performance” solution. That’s exactly what Graham is describing.
Hope to write more about this in the future 🙂
