Conferences like this are all about adopting new practices and new tools. Software engineers are early adopters, almost by definition. But a topic that's barely been discussed, even in the fields of marketing, information science, and economics, is at what point do the costs of adoption begin to outweigh the benefits? When does constructive early adoption start to become destructive pro-adoption bias? And does this destructive bias exist in the Perl community?

A blog post I wrote which began to flesh out this idea is included as the Talk URL.
