Being an LED lighting Zealot, like being a Beatles fan in 1964

Sometimes you can tell someone or somethings going to breakthrough, because of

the quality and talent & potential. That describes the Beatles back in '64, and that's how the

popularity and prospects of solid state lighting are now . That right on the cusp of great things feeling.


Looking at the similarities:

A good track record and ardent supporters, an element of appropriate timing , the passion of those involved , the benefiting from the advances in the industries level of technical know how. These things and more. Looking at the level of popularity - I really do see parallels. It reminds me of the addage the cream rises to the top. I look forward to the day when use of SSL is at 90% use range - it might take 5 years maybe 10 but its certain to be here before too long!
