Disrupting the industry?

I have two stories in this issue that focus on market disruption: take a look at Shift on page 8 and Sirelo on page 18.  They are doing different things but, in their own way, have the potential to disrupt the market.  I heard about both these organisations on the grapevine and, as I am sometimes a little nosy, toddled off to see them both in London and The Netherlands respectively. You should read the stories and form your own opinion about what they are doing.
