What constitutes simple?
Simple is anything that does only what it needs to do.
I’m not a fan of combining features from other tools, and no I don’t like anything extra.
You can add anything to anything that isn’t supposed to be there, but you end up with complexity.
Complexity adds layers of cost, compromises reliability, and creates a general headache.
Adding features does not add value, it removes core focus from the craftsmanship and destroys the innate value of the tool.
Simple is simply simple, nothing else, nada, NO!
A knife cuts, an airplane flies, a car drives, a plate is for holding food. Nothing else.
Knives do not need flashlights built in. Blenders do not need calorie trackers. Fans do not need LED light indicators. Pens do not need to become tacticool monstrosities that hurt my eyes, and food should still be food, plain and simple. No incomprehensibly complex chemical names. Just beef, veggies, fruit, and milk.
What happened to society, that we need to make everything as snazzy as possible in techno-cool ways, and we can’t just have things as they are, and make them their nicest and best in beautiful simplicity?
Join me in believing that nothing should be what it’s not, and everything should be the utmost of what it is, and nothing else. This post was simple, just like it should be.
