Early Adopter Beware: 7 Huge First Gen Products

Who are you on the Innovation Adoption Life-cycle?

“Early Adopter” is a term coined from the work of Everett Rogers Diffusion of Innovations (2003) 5th ed.  It is included in a breakdown of how the general public responds to the adoption of technological innovations.  You will often see these terms broken across a bell curve and divide to represent the rate of adoption of the new technology innovation.

1. Innovators 2.5%

2. Early Adopters 13.5%

3. Early Majority 34%

4. Late Majority 34% 

5. Laggards 16%

I guess I must admit that I am an “Early Adopter” how about you?
