Yes and no. You have to have a critical mass to survive, but you don't need
to win a ratings war. Just because J. K. Rowling sells more copies doesn't
mean my book is a failure. The test is whether you have a user community
that gets benefits from the technology, not whether there are people outside
that community who fail to see the benefits, or whether there's the odd
person throwing mud from the sidelines.
