“When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” – Jonathan Swift

Change of any kind upsets the status quo.  Those who create and control the status quo will not like it.  They have a lot to lose.  They employ lobbyists and attorneys to protect the status quo.

Competitors don’t always play fair.  If you create value and manage to achieve success, you will be attacked in some way, right or wrong.

Just ask Herb Kelleher.

Consider the education “industry” where college tuition continues to increase at double digit rates at the same time innovators like Salman Kahn are giving it away.

Create value and your customers will find you.
