Familiar standards, from mass-produced building components to CAD conventions, gradually evolve in communities of practice because they seem to have worked well enough in the past, but these have no guarantee of being valid in the future. This is the root of the classic problem of induction. But what happens to existing norms when faced with the non-standard possibilities offered by CNC fabrication? What about the complexity increased by several orders of magnitude in the increasingly commonplace design of entire cities? What about persistent models that must be built for a future that is unknown and therefore impossible to count? The value of a persistent model is simply that it must persist.
