Michael Abrash might be a familiar name to you. For many reasons. Michael has worked at Microsoft, id Software, Microsoft again, then to Intel before eventually getting the job at Valve.
In a move not seen before at Valve, Michael has launched his own blog. In this blog he goes through his career and explains how he came to be working at Valve. It is a fascinating story. He talks in detail about Valve's (lack of) management structure, his early days at Valve and what he's working on now.
Yes, that's correct. Wearable computing. Think Terminator vision. This is also the reason for recent job vacancies.
Of course, this isn't the first time we've heard from Valve about wearable computing.
But the important thing to remember about all of this is it will be an incredibly long time before we see Half-Life 3 glasses or similar, but to get this kind of insight about what is going on at Valve is only a good thing.
