For years Mark created fantasy interfaces for movies and a major source of his inspiration was the great work people do in labs and personally, creating incredible software. He then discovered that some of those same people use his work as an inspiration. Who inspires who and why do I think it is a great thing that we can be inspired and copy from each other to build create something new.
