While reading blogs, books, the newspaper and other stuff, we come across many new words. Some make sense, some do not. Some become popular and some become hep.

Some words that have gained prominence in recent time are ‘blog’, ‘selfie’ (word of 2013) and ‘pivot’ a business.

Recently I came across another word ‘orbit shifter’/ ‘orbit shifting’. This word was used in the context of innovative ides that people had come up with. For a long time, many people have used ‘disruptive’ while describing their technology offerings. I believe that the authors have used ‘orbit shift’ in the same sense as ‘disruptive’, but decided to coin a new term as ‘disruptive’ may now sound too common place.
