To give you some context, I took something complicated and innovative to successfully cross the chasm. I used pizza. People care zero about a dApp. People love hot cheese pizza. People care zero about a dApp that helps them avoid hard inquires. People love pizza, puppies and ice cream

Stanford startups die in the chasm.

You +the pension fund you manage may not understand ICOs. But, this s’mores kit from @RitzCarltonHMB should alleviate and assuage #cs183ico twitter.com/wsjcs/status/8…

Solid line = s’mores kit.
— = initial coin offering

Let us look at the limo service Uber. In 2010, black town cars were available if you knew where the App Store was (limo passengers could barely dial an iPhone )

Enter, ice cream

So let us look at the innovation chasm again…

Solid line = ice cream.
“—” = uber.
