Back when beetle wings on dresses was cool, indoor plumbing was brand new. And exciting.
As a result, those with the $$ to get it wanted to show it off. Instead of having the pipes hidden inside the flooring and walls, the opposite was fashionable. Print ads from the time would, for example, brag about a property’s “exposed nickel plumbing.”
Of course, as the technology became ordinary it became obvious how silly this trend was. And plumbing moved to its rightful place: functional, but hidden.
Every new technology has its exposed pipes phase, and AI is no different.

Until next time!
