As an add-on to my earlier previous post about short message style blogging:
Always suspect the superficial and the easy. Deliberately keeping it simple makes people stupid. The universe is a complex and surprising place. Great ideas can’t be reduced to sound-bites and slogans. The deeper you go the more likely you will discover something of value. Snake-oil salesmen and con-artists have always offered really simple, easy ways to achieve things people know are tough and complicated. Why do people still buy? Laziness and greed, mostly. Wanting something for nothing. If you want to grow and develop your creativity, as in just about everything else, there are no free lunches.
In our rush for speed, we have to be careful not to oversimplify things. If we do, creativity won’t grow.
