“Complexity isn’t the enemy to a chessmaster—without it they’d be playing checkers. But there’s times when we look at the stuff we buy or experience and we swear that the design and engineering weren’t even playing checkers.
They were playing Whack-A-Mole.”
A memorable image from a great article on elegant design by Matthew May. (Via Good Experience)
