“What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see more, to hear more, to feel more ... Our task is to cut back content so that we can see the thing at all.”
Susan Sontag

Against Interpretation

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.
