The Inspiration to Will Wright's Work

As Will Wright continues to to inspire others, one has to ask, "Who inspires Will Wright?"

As I was engaged in my morning drive, I was treated to a report on NPR's program "Morning Edition" called, "Open Mic." The cool thing about this airing was that it features a very prominent game designer, Will Wright. The twist of this interview was that Mr. Wright was the interviewer! Huh! That’s original. In the interview, Mr. Wright spoke to the inspiration for most of his games, Harvard University's Professor Edward Osborne Wilson. In the interview, Prof. Wilson describes his pension for biology as a toddler, the need for education reform, and his quest to find answers for the existential questions. Listen and enjoy.
