Donald Wilson has died <http://theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=35973>.
He developed the Lexis Nexis legal text-search database system. However, he
had trouble selling the idea to lawyers, who were not accustomed to that
sort of thing. So what he did was offer the system free of charge to law
students. By the time they graduated, they assumed that their employers
would use this kind of thing as a matter of course. And so, naturally,
eventually, they did.

One example...so what..... How about the fact that there are a large
number of self made millionaires by the time they were 18, does this
mean everyone else can do the same.... no.
