Notch Shelves Space Game 0x10c, Cites Pressure, Desire To Work On Small Projects

richcoder Re:Strange Guy. (178 comments)

I wonder if Notch doesn't take on big projects anymore has more to do with him affording not to deal with the stress and patience it takes to deliver a big project. I think it is the same problem that many in the post-success stage have. Look at some of the greatest bands in recent history. You don't see Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Eagles etc creating at the same level they used to despite being the same creative people. Another example are actors like Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Harrison Ford. I just don't think they have motivation for money, more fame, or that self-high of doing something great yet again. If you didn't have to worry about money would you still work on what you are working on now? At the very least, it sure would make it easy for me to say fuck it when the work hits a low point. -rich

The Uncertain Future of OpenOffice.org

richcoder Re:Damned if you do... (259 comments)

Firefox isn't exactly doing much as far as UI goes.

Some could successfully argue that Firefox contains a HUGE amount of UI work. The entire app is one large UI system.
