Disruptive innovation occurs in an environment in which such disruption has not been systemically precluded, and when incumbents become complacent with their progressive growth. Take away the ability to tinker and "upset the apple cart" and you lose the means through which major technological discoveries, and the businesses that have blossomed because of them, are accomplished.
Bear this in mind as you read this comparison between the vision of the former and current chairmen of the U.S.'s Federal Communications Commission. Sounds like the incumbents are now being issued technological Barcaloungers at the FCC Club.
