If we examine the history of advances in all technological fields, we see that some improvements naturally come through technology, others come through standardization. The early history of the automobile is a good example. The first cars were very difficult to operate. They required strength and skill beyond the abilities of many. Some problems were solved through automation: the choke, the spark advance, and the starter engine. Arbitrary aspects of cars and driving had to be standardized: • Which side of the road people drove on • Which side of the car the driver sat on • Where the essential components were: steering wheel, brake, clutch pedal, and accelerator (in some early cars it was on a hand lever) Standardization is simply another aspect of cultural constraints. With standardization, once you have learned to drive one car, you feel justifiably confident that you can drive any car, any place in the world.
