Adoption Curves

Great chart showing adoption curves for various pieces of technology over history. Notice the slope of the adoption curves. In the early 1900s it was a slow adoption over a period of decades. Then in the 1960s the curves start getting steeper and by 1990 we go from basically no cell phones to full adoption in less than 15 years. Shows how the rate of change is accelerating.
