More on Bits-Based Production

Yesterday I talked about how I was trying to rationalize the difference between bits vs. atoms based goods, and the associated production, especially as it related to the content of our OpsMgmt course. Today I saw this brief interview, Five Questions with Fred Wilson, where Fred talks about the pressure that bits-based economies will face in 2009. While the bits-based stuff always seems to get headlines about the innovation aspects, Fred does a nice job of highlighting that it ultimately will be about how those industries drive this bits-based functionality into their production systems....for whatever good or service they deliver.

The connections between the two are starting to make alot more sense....
