BT weren’t alone – Douglas Engelbart had also discussed the concept in 1968. In 1802, Sir Humphry Davy demonstrated a prototype incandescent lamp, but it was Thomas Edison who developed the light bulb – a full 77 years later. That gap between the market and technology is sometimes called the innovation gap, and that is the gap that the graduates of our Masters in Marketing of innovations under current technological trends.
