Personal note

I can’t go into detail here, but this is a pretty exciting plan for an MMO company. It’s not your typical WoW clone, but rather an ambitious idea to really push MMOs forward. The company has raised a first small round of money to work on a demo/prototype. So, if you’re interested in doing something that’s not the same old stuff that has me personally excited, check out the link or send me a mail.

I value your comment and think the discussions are the best part of this blog. However, there's this scourge called comment spam, so I choose to moderate comments rather than giving filthy spammers any advantage.

If this is your first comment, it will be held for moderation and therefore will not show up immediately. I will approve your comment when I can, usually within a day. Comments should eventually be approved if not spam. If your comment doesn't show up and it wasn't spam, send me an email as the spam catchers might have caught it by accident.
