  Disruptive technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A new-market disruptive innovation is often aimed at non-consumption, whereas a lower-end disruptive innovation is aimed at main stream customers who were ignored by established companies.
Christensen distinguishes between "low-end disruption" which targets customers who do not need the full performance valued by customers at the high end of the market and "new-market disruption" which targets customers who could previously not be served profitably by the incumbent.
Disruptive technologies are not disruptive to customers, and often take a long time before they are significantly disruptive to established companies.

 Hot Topic: Disruption -
For example, the disruption rate for children adopted between ages three and five ranges between 3 and 5%, while the disruption rate for children adopted at the ages of 15 to 17 can be as high as 47%.
Risk for disruption is increased, though, in cases where the adopted child displaces a biological child as the oldest in the family, or when siblings are placed in a home with other biological or adopted children (Barth and Berry, 1988).
Disruptions are very likely in cases where an emotionally disturbed child is placed with a family which indicated that they do not intend to adopt an emotionally disturbed child (Barth and Berry, 1988).

An excellent example of this is the Great Userbox War of 2006; several users who claimed userboxes were disruptive, set about deleting and trying to stop further creation of such userboxes.
The ensuing fight was orders of magnitude more disruptive than any supposed disruption for which the userbox opponents were able to provide evidence.
Certainly, acts which, taken by themselves, are not disruptive may be part of of a larger disruptive act.

If and when this marvelous disruption occurs, the current TV manufacturers will be in a vulnerable position, where their expertise can be outflanked by others.
However, having a new paradigm is not enough "for a discontinuous innovation to be disruptive, successful exploitation is vital, which, results in significant transformation of the mainstream market and its value proposition." Disruption in the market is a big threat to established companies, who are often blindsided by the changes.
Big companies are inherently bad at disruptive innovation; their investment is paid back better if they make evolutionary innovations, improving products they know they have a market for.

 ORB: The Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies
Some of the greatest triumphs of English architecture were created in the Gothic style in the 15th and 16th centuries, in a period where that style was dead and reviled on the continent.
England was culturally and (in the second half of the century) politically disengaged from the continent: which may have had the benefit of keeping the country out of continental wars.

 TUTORIAL ON CELL DISRUPTION
Cell disruption is a sensitive process because of the cell wall's resistance to the high osmotic pressure inside them.
The results of these methods are often evaluated in terms of the activity level of a cellular enzyme released to the disrupted suspension, combining the efficiency of the disrupting process with an estimate of the degree of cell disruption.
Cell disruption is accomplished by three different mechanisms: impegment on the valve, high liquid shear in the orifice, and sudden pressure drop upon discharge, causing finally an explosion of the cell.

 Adoption Disruption and Dissolution: Numbers and Trends
The term disruption is used to describe an adoption process that ends after the child is placed in an adoptive home and before the adoption is legally finalized, resulting in the child's return to (or entry into) foster care or placement with new adoptive parents.
Individual studies of different populations throughout the United States are consistent in reporting disruption rates that range from about 10 to 25 percent—depending on the population studied, the duration of the study, and geographic or other factors (Goerge, Howard, Yu, and Radomsky, 1997; Festinger, 2002; Festinger, in press).
Berry and Barth (1990) found a disruption and dissolution rate of 24 percent for children ages 12 to 17 for a sample of 99 adolescents.

 Endocrine disruption by estrogenic environmental pollutants
Laboratory animal studies indicate that a wide variety of hormone-dependent physiologic effects are associated with exposure to environmental pollutants, and in vitro mechanistic studies have demonstrated that environmental pollutants not only have affinity for hormone receptors but are also able to act via the receptor to induce agonistic or antagonistic effects.
The second body of evidence favoring the endocrine disruption hypothesis derives from incidents of acute human and wildlife exposure to hormonally active xenobiotics, which have typically resulted in impaired reproductive capability in the exposed individuals and in their offspring, although cancer has also been implicated.
Apparent trends in human disorders related to hormonal disruption, such as decreased sperm counts and increased incidence of breast and testicular cancers, are consistent with a possible role for widespread endocrine disruption, although this association remains controversial.

So the first thing is to look at disruptive technology as a growth opportunity and not as a threat.
One of the litmus tests is that, in almost every case, a disruptive technology enables a larger population of less skilled people to do things that historically only an expert could do.
The disruptive technology almost always takes root in a very undemanding application, and the established market leaders almost always try to cram the disruption into the established application.

 Adoption Disruption
Families may chose to legally dissolve or 'disrupt' the adoption and find their child a new home with a family that has the skills and experience to parent these challenging children.
Occasionally, disruptions are due to a family ' mis-match' where a child's personality and individuality simply don't 'fit' for a particular family or parenting style.
Caution: Adopting from disruption is NOT a cheap way to adopt an internationally born child.
