Everyone's arguing for simple these days, including myself, but I find myself thinking more about surprising things, which are in some ways directly opposed to simple things. At least, at first glance. If you walk into a room, and know that rooms usually have a hard wood or carpet floor, but instead find that this room is covered in grass and only has one chair made out of kitten hair, would it be appropriate to say that the room was simple? It's not the first adjective that crosses the mind. But maybe that room would be more preferable to sit in if you were given the choice between it and a blank room with a single standard chair. Out of surprising things come games, delight, and change. And I guess also fear, pain, and confusion, which should be avoided if possible. It's tough to build simple things, and it's probably even tougher to build surprising things.
