Convergence density is really a qualitative measure of how much innovative disruptive technology you’re using in your marketplace, as opposed to the standard technology that’s being used in a marketplace. So in the case of a smartphone industry, how much of your technology use is really directed towards the phone call and how much is directed towards the GPS navigation, the tweeting, the social interaction, and other playings, the game playing, the music listening, everything else. So when I’m defining convergence it’s really bringing all of those other technologies into play and bringing down into an industry, which normally had been simply a telephone making technology.
