One of my colleagues and I have written a series of articles about “Needless Complexity”, and the last one was finally published today on IBM’s Think Research website.
The four articles are:
- The many facets of complexity: Unthinking complexity: Bypassing the simple solutions
- Diffused complexity: Hiding the overhead
- Chosen complexity: Insisting on intricacy
- Layered complexity: Overflowing in-boxes
[Updated, November 12, 2014: The articles on Think Research have vanished; I’ve reposted them here.]
And the nice folks at Magnolia Audio-Video just called to let me know that the TV is fixed and wanting to arrange a delivery time. I’m afraid it’s going to take longer to arrange the delivery than it took them to repair the TV, since I’m stuck in all-day meetings at work for the next few days.
