Lessons Learned from the Computer

I "finished" a game of Civilization 4 tonight.  I put the word in quotations because I quit out before I was completely defeated.  There was a lesson there.  Somehow the other civilizations got ahead of me on technology, and I was going down pretty hard.  I had a nice nation state going, but when the guys showed up with guns against my bows, well, it was over.

This makes me think about the world of business.  I work in the production sector, so there does not SEEM to be technologically based competition, but I've got to think it is there somewhere.  We may think we're doing great with our bows and then wonder what the frack happened when the guys with firearms show up...
