Mark Miller:

I'm a big fan of science fiction and alternative history. Seeing how people envision the future, or how one small change could have a huge influence on how things might have turned out is just fun. It also gives insight into the way that people look at the world. One person sees misery where another sees hope. It's all a matter of perspective. I find that those insights help me see things in other perspectives and allow me to change the way I look at the problems I'm tackling.

Adam Torkildson:
