Fame/Fortune/Success/Popularity - Fueled by Peer Review!

This is interesting.

Evidently things become popular not just because they're good, but because people glom onto what other people think about how good they are.

Required reading for those (like myself) who suspect they're not rich and famous because they weren't good enough. It could have just been bad luck. No, really, it could. Honest. (Don't interrupt me while I'm reinforcing my denial..)
