Simple Made Easy (vs Complex, Twisted)

Simple Made Easy @ InfoQ, from Strange Loop conference

An excellent presentation about importance and nature of simplicity,
by author of Clojure programming language.

Simple: sim-plex = one fold/braid, vs complex

Easy: ease < aise < adjacens = lie near (be nearby), vs hard

Simple is objective, specific; Easy is relative to current position.

Simple: one of something, one role, one task, one objective, one dimension
Most important: lack of interleaving not cardinality

Complex: twisted, braided together.
