John Maeda, a professor in the MIT Media Lab, gives his talk on simplicity and how it plays a role in his position between technology and art. I read John’s book, The Laws of Simplicity, a few months ago, and yes, as many will tell you, it’s a pretty simple book. There are ten laws of simplicity that boil down to the main point — get rid of everything that’s unnecessary and nothing more. Although nothing earth-shattering, John’s book makes some good points and has some interesting anecdotes from his many trips to Japan and family life; it’s a nice read for some lazy Sunday. He’s also a pretty entertaining speaker, so sit back, relax, and enjoy yet another TED talk.
