Escape Buttons and Our Technological Devolution

Grant McCracken on how simplicity and complexity work hand in hand. Good summary quote: "And there was awhile in the 1990s when people would roll out talk of mother boards, chip speeds and baud rates. But that's over now, isn't it? We now understand that every new advance in technology will be yet another measure of how little we understand and far we are falling behind. Now mastery is finding the escape key and the willingness to use it early and often."
