Simon Wardley: Evolution, diffusion, hype cycle and early failures:

“I looked at many techniques to measure change and found all of them wanting. I spent years finding out that lots of things weren’t useful for describing evolution. This is why I spent so long in the British Library cataloguing many thousands of publications. There was no effective means of describing the process of evolution until I’d done this work and found a process that seemed to work.”
