As for the comment that it's difficult to get people to be interested, that seems very true to me, and it's good to get the data of your vast experience with this.

A separate question is how we can best attempt to get people to be interested. You commented on the failure you experienced with the "throw your techniques away, these ones are better" approach. That seems like a good point. I sense that my message takes that approach too strongly and could be improved.

I'm interested in hearing about anything you've found to be particularly effective.
