Tom Peters, in Re-Imagine!: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age:
To my 30-year-old readers: I hereby wager that when you’re my age, Wal-mart and Dell will be either dead or irrelevant.
I’m not positive on that — I think they can last. But that doesn’t mean they will. Will be interesting to see.
(Tom Peters, by the way, was I think around 60 when he wrote this. So I’m putting this in my tickler file for about 2036.)
