Disruptive technology is an innovation that undermines conventional processes in an industry, not necessarily one that damages the natural or social environment, though it might. Contributors in business, engineering, policy, and other fields cite examples to explore effects and implications. Among their topics are portable digital music players, strategy and policy issues related to nanotechnology innovations in medical education, a participatory and proactive approach to planning and designing educational technology for low-income communities, rethinking mass communication theories in the Internet era, and policy influence of solar photovoltaic diffusion into the Nigerian rural energy mix.
