2008-02-14 12:45 Keep it simple

Jani Kenttälä/jani2.jpg

Dr. Stuart Cheshire from Apple gave a talk at Google: Zero Configuration Networks with Bonjour. Understanding Bonjour was nice. But the thing I liked most was that he was ranting about how we should keep protocol designs as simple as possible.

From time to time it seemed that he was almost ashamed about how simple the protocol is. I just wonder: how many nowadays think complexity and sophistication are synonyms? As Antoine de Saint-Exupéry famously put it: Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
