In attempting to reduce the frustrations caused by the complicated nature of much of today’s technology, many solutions miss the point. It is no great trick to take a simple situation and devise a simple solution. The real problem is that we truly need to have complexity in our lives. We seek rich, satisfying lives, and richness goes along with complexity. Our favorite songs, stories, games, and books are rich, satisfying, and complex. We need complexity even while we crave simplicity.
Now that’s something to ponder!
