    Conventions hang around for a very long time. Because of human nature, we can’t have abrupt changes in technology. People need to be transitioned from one to the next. Standards have to be continuous for some definition of continuous. And that makes them incredibly tenacious.

    Now I know a lot of people who watch my videos work in the tech sector, and who are responsible for coming up with standards and conventions. A lot of young people who watch these videos: you’re going to come up with the conventions and standards of the future. So all of you, please, when you’re coming up with new ideas, just spare a thought that your grandkids may one day still be locked into the same standard.
