Holography has been enjoying an explosion of public interest over the past two years, especially as the number of three-dimensional laser photographs in peoples' homes has increased dramatically. Underlying this public perception of progress has been an authentic and gradual development of holographic imaging technology, but it is fair to say that holographers are still struggling against the same fundamental constraints as they were more than ten years ago. In business, "timing is everything," and the recent events in holography are largely business phenomena (it has always taken a lot of patience to be a holographer, and no less so in these matters!). In this discussion, we will attempt to draw out a few of the long-term threads of holographic progress that underlie the recent good news.
