Abstract
From time to time, major technological innovations arise that alter the time-honored ways of doing things. Such innovations can dramatically benefit society in terms of new products, increased outputs, reduced costs, and general modernizations. However, the advent of these types of technologies is likely to be resisted because of their uncertain potentials, and because they disrupt established routines and industry patterns. This paper reviews the case history of water jet coal cutting and assesses its potential to become a major innovation within the next decade.
