By applying a network analytical approach, this paper examines the position of technological network in shaping the contribution of a technology in technological development. Between the core and the periphery of the technological network structure, we argue that technologies which occupy an intermediate position are in propensity to seminal technologies, on the contrary, which occupy a peripheral position are to more tendency to succeed or derivative technologies. We empirically test the patent data of insurance business method and the theoretical implications of the results are discussed.
