“A user interface should be so simple that a beginner in an emergency can understand it within ten seconds.”

This is one of his famous quotes and he launched “Project Xanadu” in 1960, for the purpose of creating a simple system in computer networks. He devoted most of his life to this project, however, the project xanadu didn’t work well.
