Earlier this year (Managing Complexity) I blogged about John Maeda’s book, The Laws of Simplicity (Simplicity: Design, Technology, Business, Life). Now you can watch a presentation he did around the same time at TED.
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.
