[Oliver Peters] "Most people didn't need more than that to take an instant like or dislike to it. Having it in their hands didn't really change the opinion if they didn't like what they saw and heard at SuperMeet.

Again we agree TOTALLY.

And this reminds me of the wonderful book David McCullough wrote about the Wright Brothers.

They flew. Then they went to the "establishment" - and the establishment TOTALLY turned their backs on them.

Local, State, Regional, National - they pounded the pavement trying to get people to listen about what they'd managed.

What they got in response was: Machines can't fly. Period.

It wasn't until Wilbur took their "airplane" to France and flew in front of a crowd there - that people figured out what had happened.

I'm not saying X is remotely close to as transformative as powered flight.

What I am saying is that time, and time, and time again, people have proved astonishingly resistant to change.

And that truly useful change has a history of flying over many, many peoples heads. Even very smart people.
