Two questions: What are some tech or science discoveries that quickly became outdated? Two: What are some of the stories of early tech innovators whose genius flamed out quickly?
Why do you think these things happened, in their particular way to these particular people? What did they not see coming? Did hubris play a part? I've become interested in how early success, in some people, can lead to a lifetime of failure because of how that success impacts the way they perceive themselves and approach problems.
