We don't know where breakthroughs will come from and there is no guarantee that they will come from a popular area which is currently drawing a lot of attention. I think the natural pattern is that something new, something which no one was paying attention to before appears when there is a bottleneck. It would be a serious mistake to nip things like this in the bud.
Two break-throughs, Comrade Stalin, two break-throughs.
Great teamwork is the only way we create the breakthroughs that define our careers.Pat Riley
