Popular culture is a mirror, and we are living in a time where every day some kind of shocking or amazing announcement is made. To read today, for instance, that researchers have found a way to destroy HIV or help 80 percent of Alzheimer's patients, it's amazing. These types of things are becoming more commonplace. There's more science in our lives, so there's more science on TV.
I'll find myself constantly grabbing science magazines or looking at articles online. But the most important thing when making entertainment is finding something that's inspiring. Whenever I do, whether it involves technology or not, it's like fuel for me. It could be a three 3-minute clip on the Internet that someone sent me that makes me consider something that I hadn't thought about before . . . Everyday there's something. Yesterday somebody sent me a picture of this crazy pig with a monkey face. So, yeah, there's always something.
