San Francisco & Alpha Adoption Culture

8 thoughts on “San Francisco & Alpha Adoption Culture”

  1. I would like to share a hypothetical distinction from a perspective that is academic, instead of experienced-practictioner; I would like to offer it up to the crowd for vetting:

    Technical innovation perhaps is best served to the high-tech market first; new services that don’t signal any sea change in process could marketed directly to the post-chasm segments

  2. Very true. For somebody who lived in SV and then moved out it is clear that many investors and entrepreneurs there constantly live in the reality distortion field.

  3. Great read. I think SV will continue to have an edge in strictly consumer oriented start-ups where the alpha adoption culture is critical for success. The cult of early success in the valley and then a nationwide roll-out is a proven model. Takes a long time to replicate elsewhere.

    Disruption of enterprise IT would be a much different game as the early adopters (other than tech industry) are not in the valley. SV would almost have to learn real business ๐Ÿ™‚ not impossible, but not a given and there lies the opportunity for outsiders.
