What is Simple?
Everybody wants to keep it simple, or so they say. Looking around I am not so sure. The natural impulse of collecting and having and knowing as much as possible gets in your way. KISS is renouncing apparent pleasures.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.”
How do you measure 'simple'? What is too simple? There is no simple answer.
"A simple solution has elegance. It is the result of an exacting effort to understand the real problem and is recognized by its compelling sense of rightness. I stress this point because it contradicts the conventional view that power increases with complexity. Simplicity provides confidence, reliability, compactness, and speed."
"A simple design always takes less time to finish than a complex one. So always do the simplest thing that could possibly work next. "
"Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away."
