Gall and Hofstadter – two Laws worth learning

Today I ran across this blog post that references two of my favorite “laws”, namely Gall’s Law and Hofstadter’s Law.

The posting is a commentary of the importance of simplicity and resonates with the idea that “creativity is the elimination of options”.

I guess I should mention that Mr. Hofstadter is the source of inspiration for the name of my blog “(I am) Strangely Looping”.

His insightful 2007 book is a tour-de-force of thought-provoking ideas.
