Hookshot: There are many reasons why Tim Schafer is the kind of guy people want to give thousands of dollars to.
Here’s one. Last week, I sent him an email asking if he’d speak to me for a new website I was setting up. He got straight back and said: ‘Yeah, I’ll call you later in the week’. It’s not like we’re old buddies – I interviewed him once at the Develop Conference in Brighton; he was funny and charming; he swapped business cards with his co-interviewee, Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of Bioware (now that would be an interesting collaboration), and then he left. That was it.
