I would just like to add, the people that are living on the edge do not 
try new things. You have to feed the family.   In all of my education 
about diffusion of new ideas, it is only people that are relatively 
scecure that can afford to try new ideas.  (heh, most of the studies 
were done in Sweden at a time when life was very tough).
