A concept I borrowed recently from Cindy: Life is better with “plug and play” Easier and simpler is better For example, anything to reduce friction to allow you to most easily play or do anything is supreme. In photography, the ultimate “plug and play”camera is a phone. You can easily shoot, process/filter your photos, select […]
