Simplicity is harder than Complexity

...this is what Neal Ford said in a discussion yesterday and it stuck with me. It sounds paradoxical but is totally true for software. We do not observe this anywhere else in the physical world.

That's why we need good engineers to design and write simple software.

Neal Ford puts it much more eloquently and I've requested him to blog about it... I'll post a link when it comes out...
