Peter Batty’s Dilemma

It appears Peter Batty is considering a move into the ESRI camp (or the “dark side” as he puts it).

I first saw Peter a few years ago when he described the Innovators Dilemma in his presentation at GIS In the Rockies.

Since then I find the dilemma has grown even more applicable to ESRI as they respond to Google Earth.

From chapter 1:

It was as if the leading firms were held captive by their customers, enabling attacking entrant firms to topple the incumbent industry leaders each time a disruptive technology emerged.

The ESRI community needs someone like him at this moment.
