How Does Einstein Relate to SOA?

There's no silver bullet that I'm aware of to magically adjust your service designs until they're optimal

As a student of physics, Albert Einstein is one of my personal heroes. Aside from being one of the most brilliant minds to ever contemplate the universe, Albert had a way with words. One of his quotes strikes me as particularly apropos for this month's issue - "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction."

This month we're focusing on two subjects that actually tie in together much more than most people actually anticipate - SOA Testing and Service Design. I'll get to how they tie together in a moment, but let's see how Einstein relates to SOA first.
