Nothing is wasted.
E. V. Lucas
In case you haven't heard, my girlfriends and I have declared the summer of 2012 as the best summer ever. The best way to document said 'best summer ever' is with a good ol' disposable camera. Smile, click, move on! Nobody gets pic approval, and there's no time wasted gathering around the camera to analyze a moment that just happened.
Basically, I want to make all of humanity more efficient by exploiting the human cycles that get wasted.
Luis von Ahn
I hate auditioning; it makes me more nervous than anything ever, and I always feel like I wasted my time and I could have been creating my own thing. With the Internet, you have so much freedom that 'gatekeepers' make me terrified.
Two years work wasted, I have been breeding those flies for all that time and I've got nothing out of it.
Thomas Hunt Morgan
