I was attending a meeting the other day on the possible drafting of rules on using the Internet for partisan election-related political activity. A friend who was also in that meeting made a joke about me being passive on 2005 about blogging but hit back with a vengeance from 2006 onwards.

Then realized this friend, despite the fact we don't get together face-to-face that often, quite knew me well.

There are many ways that a market can be disrupted. It is only a matter of who is doing the disruption. How much infrastructure, resources, time, and commitment can you pour in to mold the market & competition in your desired form?

Disrupting the market is usually done when you have a long term goal of putting your competition out of business or challenging the status quo. That is by giving the market a better, realistic, affordable, and wiser alternative that they can either do it on their own or outsource with the right information on hand.

What also makes a disruption effective is if it can be done in a way that is not replicable or where opponents appear lacking originality and can be seen right away as a blatant copycat.

Why disrupt? Apart from securing the area where you stand on, it is also about giving the market an alternative by changing their perception about a product or service. As the market corrects itself, you can only hope that you still remain there.

On a personal level, it is also a reminder that desired correction of ourselves takes time, Oftentimes, self-disruption is required.

It is amazing when you see yourself in another person that you care for. It makes you understanding and considerate. But at the same time, it gives you conviction that a possible outcome is bound to happen, which you experienced in the past, unless you do something about it. What is even more scary is when there is a change of roles.

Then at one point, an event or two will occur and you will suddenly look back and realized that all the things you have deliberately disregarded are signs. If the present not properly handled, you'll panic on how bad it can get in the future. Depending how traumatic your past is, it may make you say, "I'm walking away now for I don't want to become that person."

There are some things that aren't being said deliberately, for one reason or another. But what you can do is watch for the signs and who knows it will just hit you. So for those of you in that stage, I hope this moving on / letting go / acceptance prose will enlighten you. Don't worry, you'll get there and start smiling again. =)

i know that rage
i know that anger
i've been there before
i know where it will go

if i'll keep expressing my love
that anger will be more hurtful
i will just cry now
but later on my love may turn to rage too (i don't want that)

the signs have always been there
i just turned my eyes blind
but now i accepted the truth
there's nothing i can do
there no love for me in you

i know that rage
i know that anger
i've been there before
i know where it will go

Walking away as I don't want
to lose the love that I have

You don't see what I see
Because you don't know what I've been through
When someone's love wont set you free
yet trapped as you need that person too.

i know that rage
i know that anger
i've been there before
