A systems paradox:

Make systems as simple as possible.


make them as complex as necessary to keep things as simple as possible.

aka, "keep it simple."

(Funny, I just learned that Occam was not the inventor of that notion.)

And my genius friend Randy just said:

This reminds me of one of my favorite Einstein quotes:

"Everything Should Be Made as Simple as Possible, But Not Simpler"

And of course, the 10th principle of Agile software development:

Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.
