Trends in usage – data/information that fades from common usage

A very broad category of data that we’ve talked about before is everything that simply fades from common usage because of changes in convention.  This is certain an obvious reason why something might not be there but is in someways the reverse of information that is so commonly used that it is no longer explicitly noted, i.e., evolving standards.

In a subsequent post I’ll talk about a specfic examples such as evolving knowledge and frames of reference in science and the shift in standards for research.
