Quote > Organizations committed to the preservation of problems
Well, organizations that are founded to solve problems end up committed to the preservation of the problems. So Trentway-Wagar, an Ontario-based bus company, sues PickupPal, an online ride-sharing service, because T-W isnít committed to solving transportation problems. Itís committed to solving transportation problems with buses. In the media world, Britannica is now committed to making reference works that canít easily be referred to, and the music industry is now distributing music that canít easily be shared because new ways of distributing music undermine the old business model.
