Thankfully, no more “disrupt”! No #disrupting Not!


Thankfully, no more “disrupt”! No! Not that much, not that more! At least not that flood! Years 2016 & 2017 mostly everywhere I saw the prefix disrupt+ words “disrupts” & “disrupting” not just in technology, markets & related, not just industry, but across the globe across areas. It was so general & common use! I’m not saying it’s in hibernation mode this year or dead.

I was not just overwhelmed by the overuse of “disrupt” but baffled as to the common knowledge & mine, & use, it was actually in the negative & not revolutionary/inspirational. Earlier that word I could hear/read only in political circles & functioning: disrupting Parliament/Sessions/Events; & then suddenly movement / ideology is disrupting etc.

Most disrupting (/ occurring) combination / terms / phrases:

disrupting policy (/market policy, govt…);

disrupting innovation, disrupting idea;

such & so technology disrupting

digital disruption (much more than earlier digital / business transformation)

disrupting trend

discovery & findings going to disrupt

DICTIONARY meaning: Interrupt (an event, activity, or process) by causing a disturbance or problem.

>Drastically alter or destroy the structure of

>to break apart

>to throw into disorder

>to interrupt the normal course or unity of

>to throw into confusion or disorder

>to interrupt or impede

Origin:

Late Middle English: from Latin disrupt- ‘broken apart’, disruptus, from the common verb disrumpere.

(“to break or burst asunder”), from dis-, di- (“apart, asunder”) + rumpere (“to break”).

So why disrupt? Because it got a (new!) meaning to it:

To improve a product or service in ways that displace an established one and surprise the market.

That kind was definitely thought provoking & compelling almost any body and everybody using the buzz-word/catch-phrase prefix disrupt!

Is it safe to say “disrupt” the father of notion (if not common child), not just notion/s, but of all (disrupting) posts/articles/views/proposals/publications & ideas?

The rescuer, the insurance & guarantee of a disrupting one!

disrupt* -the  father & mother of all disrupting ones. The AllMighty!

It was as if it was trash (forget even disrupting) if it didn’t contain the word/prefix “disrupt” itself!

Whose brain child by the way?

It’s not about bucking the trend, not just buzzing, but disrupting!

The word that caught & captured the imagination, changed many a life & caught so many views! so disrupting! that even “out of box” got boxed out!

Oops! Did I use so many disrupts!? Not disrupting!

Cheers!

Merry Christmas!


It’s the Christmas Eve and still Eric is busy, in fact, lost in fixing his next big thing in Telecommunications. He has been working relentlessly more than passionately to make it on the floor, I mean his next breakthrough technology. But he has just been missing something to rock it and roll on. He has been so lost and out of touch with his own life, his family – the world that matters to him the most.
As Ena (Eric‘s wife) has been carrying and almost all alone taking care of their baby who is about to come out to this lively world! As the the doctor’s team are putting their best efforts to make it all smooth for Ena and the baby, Ena has been obviously missing Eric by her side for a long long time. In fact, Eric has even forgotten all that he and Ena are going to be parents and the medical team is even in their house for Ena!
As the Christmas Eve is all set to make a transition into Merry Christmas, there comes the new baby out to the world! The baby child’s first cry just makes the whole house and surrounding so lively and musical that suddenly Eric even jumps with happiness than out of joy in his confined world! The medical delivery teams shouts with joy ‘it’s a boy…’, Ena is so happy after lot of pain she has had to go through, Eric rushes to the room! Every body is so ecstatic and here goes Merry Christmas in chorus! Eric holds on to the baby and says to Ena, “it’s our baby, our son”! Ena befittingly with a smile says to Eric, “Yes Eric, it’s your son, it’s my son, it’s our son! You are a father, and how can I express how it has been feeling being a mother!”. Eric and Ena are so happily close to each other now with the baby. It doesn’t matter to them whether it’s a boy or a girl! They are relishing the moment that they are again truly together and smiling!

Eric realises, the best innovation in the world is Life! Now he realises he has been part of this eternal innovation! He realises all the science, technology, equipment etc. don’t matter at all in front of this greatest natural innovation ‘Life‘. As we communicate our feelings, the joy through our smiles, eyes and some uttered and expressed words! Everything else is secondary and they will keep coming.

(As very soon Eric gets it all right virtually with little effort in his gigantic innovation lab.)

The “i” and Steve Jobs


On the auspicious occasion of VijayaDashamii, the soul celebrates the freedom and the eternity as it departed from the cancered body! Cancer was just a reminder to us that the body is a body, a temporary form and shape! The soul will gain another form and shape in the name of someBODY and again be in Sync !
The soul was at peace as it could contribute finally to India , where the body and mind got actually reunited in Sync with the Soul through Spiritual Enlightenment! The uniting and Syncing of Inner and Outer! The latest strategy shift of Apple in form of products, services, marketing towards India shows that – iStrategy!
iP* – I Product! Iconic Product(s)! Inherently Productive, Infectiously Positive, Inherently Portable, Inherently Present, Inherently Prevalent!
iPod (a medium of sound and music, iMusic) was pricey yet not so pricey though! But what Apple was lacking at least in the area of mobile phone presence in India, it’s starting to fill the vacuum through its series of iPhone (not to be iPrice)! iPad is the tablet! iOS is just starting to fill the small yet most significant features for the users across! So ‘I’ for Implementation! Not just the spread of iTunes (iThink, IT)!
So the iSoul was at iEase and at iPeace! As it’s known Steve died peacefully!
iSteve not any more in the world of the alive! But Inner Spirit eternal! The identity of S, is evergreen!
The day for the Wall Street be remembered the iStreet!
Steve Jobs, you have never departed! Because you will be remembered not as the physical body and form we have seen, but as the great phenomenon, the great soul through its contribution chain of innovation and inspiration in the form of products better known as revolution!
A JOB Well Done! iSoul!
A toast to the iCreativity, iScience, iTechnology!

The APPLE was a BYTE earlier, now it’s starting to be a full APPLE! So FRESH again!

The time for iSport! Towards iPerfection!

The ‘I’ Eye of Eyes!
‘I’ – EYE! The Eye is a sphere! So it’s the world, the globe! It just doesn’t see things, it visualises them, it has a vision!
The “I” ‘Of’ “SPIRIT”, the “I” ‘Of’ “Soul”! (iOS)
The I Of S! The In and Out of S! (iOS)
The “I” “C”! Yes, I See! (iC*) The Independent Cloud! The “Icon” of the “Century”!
“I” for IMAGINATION, “I” for INNOVATION, “I” for INSPIRATION!
When expressed with respect to the SOUL, the “I” is just the AVATAR, the INCARNATION!
The “I” is so sweetly and positively Infectious!
Mathematically, ‘I’ to the power of Infinity!
