      Huge changes in the way that business is done. I'll be surprised if more than half of huge traditional corporations manage these changes. What will it cost them? Are they "too big to fail?" Not in the government bailout sense (I hope), but in the "people will use them anyway as they're the only real option."

        I think we might see more of a twist of this statement:

        The judgment they should fear the most now is idealistic employees on the inside and the social media warriors on the outside.

        The idealistic social media warriors on the inside, who share screenshots of dumb shit leaders do in Slack etc. We've seen it in a series of articles here that study the downfall of hyped companies that lose their thunder (WeWork, Wing, that hipster luggage company....)

        It's becoming rather hard to duck accountability

        "people will use them anyway as they're the only real option."

        this is such a wise point. It happens and makes me cray. I try to bank on early adopters eventually starting the trend. Slow process though, bc it requires cultural norms to change, but worth banking on. The kids of the "call out culture" are graduating college soon if they aren't in the workforce already, they're going to raise heck that I bet throttles the "use them anyways" route

      Radical changes are happening. Those that are open to it will thrive.
