Today John Maeda came to the office to talk about simplicity and give feedback about Ript. It was interesting and I enjoyed talking to him more than reading his book (which was 100 pages of falling asleep on the train).
Overall, I'm not into his "laws" of simplicity -- I guess its the scientist in me... the use of the word laws for ideas... especially abstract ideas. However, he did have interesting ideas for Ript and I found the parts of the discussion that were not focused on simplicity quite entertaining.
Days like these really make me appreciate working at Oxygen. So do days like yesterday, when I won an iPod :)
