Tomorrow I will be appearing on NPR's ON POINT to talk about The Laws of Simplicity from 11-12PM EST. In the process of releasing the LOS book to the public, I've discovered a great deal of sincere love for and, in equal quantities, unbounded distaste for the project. From people buying hundreds of copies for their divisions to unlock the secrets of simplicity in design, to individuals that want to use the book as a doormat (they probably have tiny feet as LOS is a smallish book). Who would have thought that an innocent topic like "simplicity" could carry such controversy?
