I especially like this one.

These don't really seem like quotes that someone wants to be seen as quotes they seem like exerts from his speeches that alone make no sense.

We have spent quite a bit of time considering a good space game, and I can't really say anything at this point, but we are definitely still interested in that area.
Will Wright

Quote
We really want to have most of the failure in a game be based on things that the player did, as opposed to things outside of the player's control.

Quote
I think for most people, their kind of general aesthetic with games is that the more I control this experience, the better the game is.
Will Wright

Quote
Because now it's the fans out there that are entertaining us, the developers, with their creations!

Quote
And so from that, I've always been fascinated with the idea that complexity can come out of such simplicity.

 Hi everyone,
 
 I was wondering what was going on. I used to get maybe 2 or 3 questions a day about Spore from random people (which I enjoyed answering between meetings). A few days ago that number shot up way into the double digits (about 1/2 my email now). I think I've tracked it back to here.
 
 With this many it's impossible for me to answer it all and I feel like it's unfair for me to answer some but not others. If the volume drops back down hopefully I can go back to answering them.
 
 I hope everyone understands... I imagine you'd rather get Spore sooner than have me answering emails all day.
 
 Now I'm sure a long discussion will ensue over whether I'm really me (chuckle)

I wonder if you could have an html script in a title that puts a random Will Wright quote after every post. These ones sound just random and crazy enough to work as a title for everybody.

"Actually, many years ago, we had a company-wide vote for our informal company-wide mascot, and the choices came down to the Boston tree fern, beef tape worm and a llama. And somehow the llama won the vote!"

But that site's just a list all on one page, doesn't seem to be a random quote grabber. Would need some dedicated sporeian (sporaddict?) to put together something to link to I think. :)
