read more: technological momentum

"According to Hughes’s theory, the technologies we end up using aren’t determined by any objective measure of quality. In fact, the tools we choose are often deeply flawed. They just happened to meet our particular social needs at a particular time and then became embedded in our culture." 

- "Why Your Car Isn't Electric," New York Times

Thomas Hughes is a great writer I have read most of Thomas Hughes stories and I have also read this theory in technological momentum research papers. There are many researches about technological momentum I have shared one, and I hope that this would add value to the readers.
