Before you all forget:
The process of innovation...is characterised by the continuous emergence and constant negotiation of role definitions between ‘users’, ‘suppliers’, and ‘innovators’, each of which may be locked-in within their own development trajectories. The roles of users,
suppliers, and innovators are not distinct but inter-dependent, as technologies grow increasingly systemic. In such an environment, the concept of the ‘market’ loses much of its meaning, as the various roles partially merge in a shared value network.
Because of the historical dominance of market-based theoretical frameworks, the dynamics of innovation in value networks are poorly understood. To understand technology transfer and diffusion in such environments, it is necessary to discard market-based theories and replace them with institutional and structural theories.

I have just enough of a philosopher in me to spend some time on this forum.
But I intend to prove my claims.
