„The complexity that we despise is the complexity that leads to difficulty.“

—  Ward Cunningham American computer programmer who developed the first wiki 1949
Context: The complexity that we despise is the complexity that leads to difficulty. It isn't the complexity that raises problems. There is a lot of complexity in the world. The world is complex. That complexity is beautiful. I love trying to understand how things work. But that's because there's something to be learned from mastering that complexity.

„I actually enjoy complexity that's empowering. If it challenges me, the complexity is very pleasant.“

—  Ward Cunningham American computer programmer who developed the first wiki 1949
Context: I actually enjoy complexity that's empowering. If it challenges me, the complexity is very pleasant. But sometimes I must deal with complexity that's disempowering. The effort I invest to understand that complexity is tedious work. It doesn't add anything to my abilities.
