## Spin Glasses

Yet Another Inadequate Placeholder

I am only being a *little* sarcastic when I say that a physicist
interested in complex systems and trained in the 1990s (like me) was raised to
look for spin glasses everywhere. There are times when I regard this as
a
childish thing I'm glad I put away, and times when it seems like
a deep
truth that the rest of the world would do well to appreciate...
