I had the honor to talk to Jacquie McNish from Toronto. She is the co-auther of ‘Losing the signal’, a great book about the rise and fall of BlackBerry. I reviewed this book last week (read in Dutch) and now I had to chance to talk to the writer. I talk with her about the influence of the rise and fall on the Canadian psyche and how dramatic even the number one young marktleaders need to pivot when Silicon Valley is eating there lunch.
