Film Diva

Finally managed to find this on DVD. It is just as cool and classy as I remembered — and with a very young Dominique Pinon (City of Lost Children, A Very Long Engagement) as the shiv wielding, crop-headed thug.

Book The Innovator's Dilemma

Actually somewhat mis-titled - the sort of innovations at the heart of the dilemma are those that serve emerging market segments first, and only later serve the pre-existing market segments well, rather than innovations that meet existing market needs.

This is coupled with the fact that it is easier to improve products at a rate faster than markets can absorb; and that there is only a limited amount of space for "top carnivores" in any ecosystem. In many respects it is the classic (if not borne out by more recent palaeontological data) “mammals pwn3d the dinosaurs” type of scenario.
