Jonah "spambot" Gregory of WingDamage:
"I first started hearing about Minecraft on twitter. The messages were cryptic, describing some sort of game involving mining for ore or some such thing. They were little snippets of “Finally, I found coal. Now I won’t die at night!” and “ZOMBGWTF ZOMBIES!!!” or “How do you make bricks?”. I had no idea what kind of game they could possibly be describing."
