Simplicity

There is much chatter about Google and its product strategy in the blog circles lately. Particualry after it announced closure of the “Google Answers” earlier this week.

Few posts are here, here and here suggesting reasons and how strategy could be changing at Google. Also, Brin suggests simplicity as way to succeed in future.

Simplicity is also key consideration for building successful enterprise product .

It reminds me of Steve Krug suggesting how development should be thinking about building products that customers can use in “Don’t make me think“.

On a side note – wikipedia remains impressive updating its entry on Google Answers real time. Living to the promise of social web providing accurate and relevant information available on timely basis. What a simple concept.
