Revolutionary. I love this. The people who will control their brand and grow it larger will be ahead of the game. "Never try to sell a meteor to a dinosaur, because it wastes your time and annoys the dinosaur" ~ Hugh McCleod comes to mind. So the conversation that has to happen is the conversation between old guard and the new guard and a digitalization of what they did really well needs to be in the hand of the people who can do it really well. A dialogue and cooperation between these two needs to happen in order to progress any organization. The middle of the road 35 year olds grew up and saw all the progression of this tech. Their prospective is extremely important to the connection of this.
