Designing Simplicity

Dang! I wish I had this quote when I was making my REST slides for Tulsa Tech Fest. It's perfect!

I think most people just make the mistake that it should be simple to design simple things. In reality, the effort required to design something is inversely proportional to the simplicity of the result.
-Roy Fielding

The man himself. Priceless. Goes along great with the one I did use:

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupry
