Quote of the Day | 03.11.20

The telephone took 75 years to reach 50 million users, whereas television was in 50 million households within 13 years, the internet in 4, . . . and Angry Birds in 35 days.  It took Microsoft Office 22 years to reach a billion users, but Gmail only 12, and Facebook 9.

Trying to resist this tide of change will drown you.
