The Edge of the Network is the Consumer

Roger McNamee has another great post, but this time on technology use by the average consumer. He's pointed out an interesting trend, one in which technologies and, namely, electronics are now very easily adopted by the average consumer and not just relinquished to become geek memorabilia. He comments on how technology businesses who used to sell to the enterprise will now be selling more and more to the end user, the consumer. Enterprises are no longer controlling technology use, and employees/consumers are becoming empowered to adopt their own products/services/applications/technologies/etc.

This idea is entirely akin to the revolution in telecom where applications, like voice, are moving to the edge of the network. So, if David Isen's stupid network is applicable here, then are large centralized enterprises going to become stupid too?
