It just ain't a Disruptive Technology(tm) until
someone calls it a "steaming pile of dog shit".

(With all this Disruptive Technology buzz going on,
if I had a solution that actually was "ready for
the enterprise" I'd take a bunch of features out
until I had enough platform snobs disgusted with

then dribble the features back in.)

"No, it's not a Disruptive Technology!  It really is
a PoS!  You aren't listening!"

"Oh, sure, that's what they _all_ say."
