?? I wasn't aware of the imminent closure of the w.o.p..

I find this puzzling. There seems to be a vague but all-pervading 
sense among our leaders that we are in some kind of hurry, lest we 
miss the boat. On the other hand, we are also being constantly 
reminded of how hard it is to 'sell' the SW to the practical world, 
the need for convincing examples, persuasive propaganda, the search 
for the Killer Ap, and so on; all of which suggests that we are if 
anything ahead of the curve rather than behind it.  So what window is 
closing, what boat are we likely to miss, and why the hurry?
