The impact was suidely known the extinction of which is dinosaurs and a host of other mammalian creatures. Apparently the asteroid phenomenon did not only happen once. According to Peter H Damianis and Stevel Kotler in his book BOLD; How to go big, create wealth and impact the world (2014), the phenomenon will happen again. Only the form of asteroid this time not in the rock forms but technology.
Among these digital technologies. The phenomenon is easily seen in front of all of us. You would often hear the word “change” or “extinct”. That means, the situation has forced us to change. Otherwise, we would be eliminated.       Examples are scattered everywhere. Abroad, you must have heard the name Kodak, Nokia, PALM, Borders, RIM, Compaq, or circuit city. The names are now thrown out of the competitive arena of business.

Perhaps we should contemplate the statement from Bill Gates “banking is necessary, banks are not”.
