- Silicon Valley's Disruption Deficit Disorder br> "If I had to guess, I'd say that a 21st century ventureconomy, just like other 21s century industries, will be built atop markets, networks, and communities. Ask yourself: why aren't there transparent markets for venture finance (like, for example a futures market, to let risk be shared, pooled, and spread)? Liquid networks to let resources be shared, pooled, and remixed amongst aspiring entrepreneurs and seasoned investors? Transparent, self-organizing communities to pool, aggregate, and filter knowledge, access, and even investment ideas? The real question for Silicon Valley is this: who can think beyond "funds," "product," "revenues," and "scale"? Who can move beyond merely making another clubby oligopoly and structurally reshape the ventureconomy, with the liquid, open, transparent, accessible, reconfigurable markets, networks, and communities that spark the reconception of companies, jobs, funds, bottom lines, IPOs, and boards (to name just a few) and as we know them?"
