“When your actions describe a system of evil consequences, you should be judged by those consequences and not by your explanations.”

Fuck Math


I got a kick from reading this before-last sentence from this post as Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance sits next to my laptop and thoughts on Quality are flowing through my mind:

“Innovation always beats math, eventually.”

Yet I didn’t enjoy nor do I agree with the short and last sentence that followed:

“That, you can take to the bank.”

I agree that Apple does innovation really well but I don’t think that accounts for their business success (though it surely contributes to it). Their business success, I believe, is due to their compromises and not their excellence.
