  1. Great visuals.. Re Figure 2. the “chasm” is real. We saw this with RBV (Resource Based View) where the method was invented in the late 1950’s but had to wait to the year 2000 or so to achieve liftoff. The core message was it is easier to manage resources when you can view them so, in this example, the name of the method was a strong predictor of it’s latency i.e. how can you view 50,000 documents at one computer screen? 3D free-form-search Kbases were the answer.

  2. One more point. Like clothing fashions, some of the technology that gets introduced goes through the curve, then seem to fall out of favor, only to come back a few years later and go through the same curve again. Example: Face recognition of individuals going through restricted access points, then, later, facial scans of crowds at outdoor events, in custom halls, etc.
