But has it gone from "cool" to "useful" (for this kind of application),
in a way that Facebook and other such sites haven't?
I remember an employer of mine when I was trying to persuade him to
build a modem into a PC so people could exchange what we'd now call
emails, and he said "Roland, come back and ask me again, when I can pay
your wages through that modem thing".
Unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity, as I left there twenty years
ago, and Paypal wasn't invented until about ten years ago.
