Volatile Data

From the readings, I found the explanation on how data in Grasshopper can be either ‘volatile’ or ‘internalized’ within a parameter very useful.

Although I consider moving a ‘number slider’ and seeing the effects of this live on Rhino pretty amazing, I can’t help but think once the definition gets more complicated; it can become useful to not be able to mess it up with accidentally moving a slider. Also, the fact that this internalization doesn’t necessarily have to be forever and you can go back and ‘extract it’ makes the whole deal less frightening.
