The crapification of everything
Good EnoughMore from the deep think file, this time from Wired in The Good Enough Revolution: When Cheap and Simple Is Just Fine looks at how simple techonology has become so successful. And yes simple doesn't necessarily mean better. In fact, or more specifically, things like the Flip camera are really just good enough.
And it's happening everywhere. As more sectors connect to the digital world, from medicine to the military, they too are seeing the rise of Good Enough tools like the Flip. Suddenly what seemed perfect is anything but, and products that appear mediocre at first glance are often the perfect fit.Interesting to read about the "good enough" principle in the military and medicine.
