We are largely unable to predict the composition and crystal structure of new extended structure compounds. Yet we find that as materials become more complex in stoichiometry and structure, new, interesting, and perhaps useful, phenomena are encountered. The need for improved experimental and theoretical approaches to seize more rapidly the opportunities provided in this complexity is discussed.
