Basic to information and communication technology design, simplicity as a driving concept receives little formal attention from the ICT community. A recent literature review and survey of scholars, researchers, and practitioners conducted through the Information Technology Simply Works (ITSy) European Support Action reveals key findings about current perceptions of and future directions for simplicity in ICT. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/Tbp_IeY596A is an audio recording of Barry Floyd of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, discussing current perceptions of and future directions for simplicity in information and communication technology.
