― Mark Waid

“Certainly, your characters – whether they are superheroes are not – should have foibles. They should have problems; they should have things that their powers can’t solve.

― Mark Waid

― Marshall Curry

“It’s interesting: I went 25 years without watching a single television show. I was one of those people, because I was so inside how a television show was made, if I would turn on somebody else’s show, I would sit there and analyze it, like, ‘Oh, so they had four hours in this location and had to get out and the number of set-ups, etc.’”

― Matt Mullenweg

“With Akismet, there was an interesting dilemma. Is it for the good of the world Akismet being secret and being more effective against spammers, versus it being open and less effective?”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Really interesting genre films, especially monster movies, evoke the fears of the times intentionally.”

― Matt Reeves

“Really interesting genre films, especially monster movies, evoke the fears of the times intentionally. Our starting point was ‘Godzilla’ – the original movie was released less than 10 years after Hiroshima, and it’s a classic in Japan.”

― Matt Reeves

― Melanie Scrofano

“I hope to do films. Right now I’m just doing projects that are interesting.”

― Melonie Diaz
