Steve Jobs and the Clean Air Act

April 30, 2012

Remember when you  had to know languages like “Basic” and  type various “C-prompt” commands to operate a computer?  Then along came Steve Jobs.  A mouse . . . a windows-based system . . . suddenly everyone could use a computer.   The genius was in the simplicity.  And not only did this focus on simplicity increase the amount of people that could operate a computer, the focus on simplicity increased the computer’s functionality and allowed the computer to become much more powerful than it ever was before.

Imagine what such a focus on simplicity could do in the field of air quality.  Imagine if we didn’t need to understand hundreds of thousands of pages of air quality regulatory materials to operate our air quality system and know if we or someone else was in compliance?

  • “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.  It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.”——E.F Schumacher

Time to simplify our system.  We can make it happen.
