Speaking of Kodak:

Why Waiting Until A New Business Model Is Proven Doesn't Work | Techdirt

In 1997, I did work with a professor who was consulting for Kodak, and we did a detailed report on why Kodak needed to embrace digital now. The response?

And, they were right that it was a lot cheaper, but they were wrong about the time to start switching.
