Standards transform the world. And simplify it. Sound a bit boastful? The fact is, when things function, we just take it for granted. Perhaps you fixed yourself a coffee this morning, toasted a slice of bread or took the car to work? It’s more than likely the filter fitted your coffee machine and your pre-sliced bread the toaster - and that the accelerator was to the right of your brake pedal. Which is just the way it should be, you think. Yes: that’s the great thing about standards!
