This news about The Next Big Thing comes from IBM’s Executive Vice President:-
Nicholas Donofrio, Big Blue’s executive vice president of innovation and technology, made the provocative declaration Tuesday in an interview with ZDNet Asia. He was in Singapore for the Infocomm International Advisory Panel’s first gathering, organized by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore.
“If you’re looking for the next big thing, stop looking.”
— Nicholas Donofrio, IBM
Donofrio said: “The fact is that innovation was a little different in the 20th century [than it is today]. It’s [now] not easy to come up with greater and different things.” “If you’re looking for the next big thing, stop looking. There’s no such thing as the next big thing,” he added.
It is quite sad hearing about this from someone in the field of innovation and technology. But sincerely, I do not think so.
