The evolution rate of different industries. High clockspeed industries, like electronics, see multiple generations of products within short time periods, perhaps even within 12 months. In low clockspeed industries, like the chemical industry, a generation of products may last as long as 5 or even 10 years. It is believed that high clockspeed industries can be used to understand the dynamics of change that will in the long run affect all industries, much l ike fruit flies are used to understand the dynamics of genetic change in a speeded-up genetic environment, due to their short life spans.
