    Platform Markets are Different. The winners in platform markets typically get 80% share, and everybody else fights over the scraps. In the late 1980s Lotus was larger than Microsoft and had a stranglehold on the highly profitable spreadsheet market with 1-2-3. None gained more than a few percentage points of market share. Novell’s NetWare reigned as the market leader until a good enough alternative came along in IP. I’ve seen this scenario play out again and again, and result is a foregone conclusion.

But today the world is one “global small town” where all your customers can talk directly to each other and every one of them can buy from you or from the guy on the other side of the planet.
