Seems like we're in the business of creating the conditions for market acceptance.  Point of this article seems to be that it takes time and effort for new tech to spread.  Neither hopeless nor fast.   And the invisible hand, left on its own, can be really slow.

Fred, I think that this article also shows the conditions that accelerate market adoption are sometimes counter-intuitive.  I also like the use of modeling to help explore market adoption and intervention effects.
