Do you have a super-duper cell phone with a thousand functions that you don't know how to use? Is your home filled with digital displays blinking 12:00? In this hour, Ira talks with John Maeda, a designer and researcher at the MIT Media lab who believes in the value of simplicity. How can complicated technology be designed with humans in mind? We want to hear your ideas about simplicity, too - call in with examples of products, devices, and systems that you think are elegantly simple, or needlessly complex.
