There’s a lot to learn from Legos. Despite being small and deceptively simple, they combine quickly to create incredible structures like skyscrapers or Jurassic dinosaurs.

The miracle of the Lego is not in its complexity nor in its size. It’s in its ability to work seamlessly with other little objects to form wholes that are disproportionately larger than the sum of their parts.

Legos and their capacity for integration are the essence of frameworks. They are opposed to jigsaw puzzle constructions where pieces need to be painstakingly molded to fit as closely as they can with one another.

Not only is this molding costly, it doesn’t lend itself to non 2-D configurations such as data and output structures that require their own sets of codes and framework protocols.
