These are definitely some of the best. → 20 Great Thoughts on Design #Engineering https://t.co/kokPZtxkLU

This is indeed a great posting. The emphasis on experience, understanding, and accuracy is very worthwhile. The role of scientists in discovery and engineers in implementation is important to understand as well. I really believe that the statement about software designs either being so simple that faults are obviously not there or so complex that faults can't be seen is especially true, and every microsopht employee should have that posted in front of them so they see it frequently. But I don't concur with Musk that anything that needs a manual is deffective. Not every aspect of every good design is intuitive to the users, nor does it need to be. On the flip side of that, though, is the reality that some designs that rely on things being intuitive are only intuitive to those who designed them, the insane and the demented.
