I was a vendor several years ago at Sears, I can tell you first hand that Sears really needs to disrupt their business as you have illustrated many times but the bigger question is why does a big company like Sears or Caterpillar lean on the state to subsidize their company. It's the small businesses that have a higher percentage of their revenues eaten by the taxes. Americans keep saying they don't want government involved in their lives but when large employer like Sears threatens to pull up stakes suddenly they are ok with this.

Agree, you should also read a book from Adam Hartung, Create Marketplace Disruption, he provides several examples of companies that failed because they continued to do the same thing even though it was clear that in order to survive they would have to break a "lock-in" in order to generate new revenues which many times cause you to cannibalize your own operations. You might like Adam's recent Forbes article on how disrupters make more money http://bit.ly/g15mzX

What about the other places were these traditional media resources exists --- think about the doctor's office I wouldn't mind waiting for the doctor if I had a Kindle there to read more current news vs. magazines that were a year old.

I know this was written a while ago so it would be interesting to see an update on this. My organziation teaches trainers how to create podcasts and they are still confused on the power of RSS feeds. Although using this method of "pushing" content to users is great, we find that not a lot of corporate cultures allow for the use of podcast tools like iTunes or iPods. Many people use these for their own personal use but we still see restrictions with enterprise use. This is one of the reasons we created a method of podcasting via the phone vs. an MP3 player. Phone-Podding utilizes IVR technology that allows users to access via any phone, receive a SMS message or have their phones dialed to push the podcast to the users. This also takes away the need to download the file which is an issue with some mobile devices that have limited storage or the ability to download files via the phone connection that are larger than 1 MB. Plus you have the added bonus of tracking how much of the podcast someone listened to--- something you don't have with the traditional distribution methods. And lastly, you can build testing and polling questions into this type of podcast by having users respond via the key pad or voice responses. KnowledgeShift has seen an increase in mobile devices for training and this is a nice alternative to sending out short audio reinforcements and worker updates.

I'm a long-time Vikings fan married to a Packers fan so of course I thought this would be the best of both worlds but I agree with you. He should just hang up his spikes and take start a new career. As great as Bret is I'd rather have the memory of just that not watching him potentially risk his reputation and his legacy.
