D-I-G-I-T-A-L: Can it spell out a stickier definition?

easy

We live in an increasingly digital world.  Everyone is talking about digital, people are dreaming about digital, and organizations are moving toward digital futures.

I am no digital expert, but I have been around it for a while.

I led internal communication for the introduction for the introduction of Digital Cable in the UK in 2001.  I drove internal communication for the integration of easyJet with British Airways spin-out Go Airways, which drove one of the earliest transformations of a legacy industry into a digital paradigm in 2003.  And now I am working as Senior Editor for a major international mobile operator with significant digital ambitions in 14 countries.

Rather than writing 1000 words, I will focus on seven letters.

D-I-G-I-T-A-L.

Disintermediating

Intuitive

Growth-accelerating

Interactive

Technology-enabled

Allies and partnerships

Lowering costs

Let me know what you think. Is there anything in this “reverse acronym” about digital that makes for a stickier definition, one that changes the terms?
