Simplicity Simplified

pr10000564_486caf93c.jpgIf you've been reading my blog for long you know I am a fan of John Maeda's Laws of Simplicity. Though my work my not look it. I just got word in my mailbox that TED has just posted his short talk.

It's a pretty lightweight talk as TED Talks go, I think I like his writing better than this presentation, but, the art gave me a few giggles. 

"About this Talk

The MIT Media Lab's John Maeda lives at the intersection of technology and art -- a place that can get very complicated. Here, he talks about paring down to basics, and how he creates clean, elegant art, websites and web tools. In his book Laws of Simplicity, he offers 10 rules and 3 keys for simple living and working -- but in this talk, he boils it down to one simply delightful way to be.
