Great article Complexity has to live somewhere on the simplicity vs. complexity battle. We love the last paragraph - it sums it up very well:
"Complexity has to live somewhere. If you embrace it, give it the place it deserves, design your system and organisation knowing it exists, and focus on adapting, it might just become a strength."
We also love the part where it says "give it the place it deserves" - the whole system does not have to be complex but complexity does need a home and by being deliberate you can create systems that are easier, both for the users and developers.
Warning: Article is cerebral. Read it when you have mental energy.
