I guess since I was the one handing out the money, I was the
decision maker on this.

I did ask around, and while one or two people asked "why?" when I
asked them whether Carol should go, there were several people who
were positive on the idea, including Simon.

Getting something to the stage "where my grandmother would use
it" is a proverbial way of describing making technology
accessible to a larger public.

I am sure this was the sense in which Luis was talking when he
said he wanted something his mother could use. That is not the
reason things are simplified, but it is a soundbite describing
the general goal of opening things up to a larger public.
