Quote from Andrew Martins
"You can always look at technology and say, 'Oooh, it could be used for evil purposes.' But the deeper responsibility I feel is 'Ooh, this could actually be useful for something and it's not being used in that way.' It's the lost opportunities that I worry about." -Will Wright
