Messrs Tapscott and Williams sometimes get carried away with their enthusiasm for the web. Great innovators often need the courage to ignore the crowd. (Henry Ford was fond of saying that if he had listened to his customers he would have produced a better horse and buggy.) Great organisations need time to cook up world-changing ideas.

And they are surely also right to predict that it has only just begun to work its magic.

"兩位作者對網路太過熱衷,有時會顯得有些過頭。偉大的革新者通常需要勇氣才能忽略群眾,偉大的組織需要時間才能想出改變世界的點子。但他們也說得沒錯,網路是我們這個時代最基進的力量,而且網路現在才剛要開始施展它的魔力。"

buggy
Refers to software that contains many flaws. Many in the software industry swear that bugs are inevitable, and perhaps they are right.
