Why Software is Complex

"Computer programs are the most intricate, delicately balanced and interwoven of all the products of human industry to date. They are machines with far more moving parts than any engine: the parts don't wear out, but they interact and rub up against one another in ways the programmers themselves cannot predict." - Gleik 1992

Software is unique in that its most significant issue is its complexity.
