Today I met a leading researcher in a field of medical research, whose field is the development of new research methods (i.e. a meta- or possibly meta-meta- field!) These methods are often very different from methods in current use. So he is particularly interested in the adoption of these new methods by researchers in his field.

During a presentation, he remarked that adoption of a particular method had initially been fairly steady, but had then flattened off, and that this was contrary to his expectations of exponential growth.
