Inspired by: I am most inspired by technical problems that are widely regarded as having no simple solution. I believe a basic truth, that anything difficult and worth doing can be assumed from the outset to be simple once you know how. So I enter any project with the sure knowledge that basic elements and few of them will win the day eventually. The path to simplicity can be a long one, and the journey is almost always more satisfying than the destination.
