I was going through some content and came across an article on how an Emerging Technology goes through a Technology Hype. An excerpt from the article:

Egham, UK, August 9, 2006 – Gartner, Inc., today announced its 2006 Emerging Technologies Hype cycle which assesses the maturity, impact and adoption speed of 36 key technologies and trends during the next ten years. This year’s hype cycle highlights three major themes that are experiencing significant activity and which include new or heavily hyped technologies, where organizations may be uncertain as to which will have most impact on their business.
