Are You A Simplifier Or A Complexifier?

April 8, 2009

I love this Miki Saxon post at Leadership Turn; Ducks In A Row: Are You A Simplifier Or A Complexifier?

But there are a number of folks out there who honestly believe that complex equals smart and simple equals dumb

I have stated it here before, in your IT infrastructure,

Complexity Kills.

    OK, I know I’m a dinosaur, but I don’t see the difference between Name, blah, blah; Name, blah blah; etc. and @Name, blah, blah; @Name, blah blah; etc.

    Sounds more like an inside techie/webby thing:)

    Very Good 🙂

    You got me!

    Where you most often see it in blogs is when there are dozens of comments – rather than reply to each individually, a single reply responding to each previous commenter

    the @ just makes it easier to line break each section –

    But you are totally correct – I don’t have zillions of comments – so there is no truly logical reason to do it!

    As a dedicated simplifier I have a question for you. Why are some people suddenly using the @ symbol in front of names as you did? Why am I @Miki instead of just plain Miki? Seems like more complexifying to me:)

    @Miki – Resonate is very, very correct!

    I think at least a third of this blog is dedicated to reducing IT complexity 🙂

    Thank you so much for your comment!

    Hi Elliot, I’m glad you enjoyed the post. I’m always tickled when I write something that resonates so well with another person.
