    Thanks for this post. Really good to hear the explorations of the histories of the different standards. This reminded me of the book 'Standards and their Stories': which explores a number of cases, including quite a few from biology. I'm not sure though it will always make sense to solve all these problems through standards: some might need to just be finding tools and processes for parallel sense-making and classification within different systems. For example, as the other key book on standards: 'Sorting Things Out, Classification and Its Consequences' - - establishing things like disease classifications related to political and funding priorities can have long-lasting, and counter-intuitive impacts over the long-run
