All disruptive businesses scare people

For a long time, disruptive businesses have scared people. Amazon is just the latest example (and like those before it, it ended up being better for consumers):

“Amazon is so new, and so dramatic in its speed and scale and aggression, that we can easily forget how many of the things it’s doing are actually very old. And, we also forget how many of the slightly dusty incumbent retailers we all grew up with were also once considered radical, daring, piratical new businesses that made people angry with their new ideas.
