Valve: How I Got Here, What It’s Like, and What I’m Doing

Michael Abrash writes: "It all started with Snow Crash.

If I hadn’t read it and fallen in love with the idea of the Metaverse, if it hadn’t made me realize how close networked 3D was to being a reality, if I hadn’t thought I can do that, and more importantly I want to do that, I’d never have embarked on the path that eventually wound up at Valve."

If only... If I'd have any sort of guess what it'd be most like, I'd say it'd probably be something similar to pip-boy from fallout (even though that's not their trademark). Or even some VR eyewear.

Very interesting, though.

I hope it's some kind of VR eyewear as I think googles project glass looks very promising!
For me VR eyewear is the next logical after todays sophisticated smartphones.
Such glasses combined with a gaming device would be superb (even if also a bit confusing :)

1) Create Half-Life
2) Create Steam
3) Profit (of course)
*you are here*
4) Computer clothes
5) Steam everywhere
6) Buy Amazon
7) Buy Apple
8) Buy Google
9) Hold World ransom for... 1 million dollars

Edit: You can buy a LOT of cheeseburgers for 1 million dollars. think about it.

Doctor million isn't exactly a lot of money these days.

I was responding to an Austin Powers reference with an Austin Powers quote, not actually gauging the worth of a million dollars.

I think you're mixing it up with Bungie. They actually have a well laid plan for world domination in 7 steps, after which they will shoot enemies into the sun with a giant slingshot:
That's even how they advertize jobs in their site...

I am sure they tried it with half life 3.
Seems hl3 will set the benchmark for interactive technology. Anything is better than kinect or the light up ice cream cone.
