    In an email from Greg Coomer (the original writer for the handbook) to Ray from Flamehaus.com, Greg was kind enough to share the handbook to the community.
    Greg also clarified "just to be clear, this doesn't mean you're hired".

    Download the Valve handbook here.

    Now wouldn't it be nice if someone just let access to "Talk Alias" happen to fall off the back of the truck, so to speak.

    I think this handbook goes a long way toward explaining why Valve can't ever release anything on time.

    I wonder how many amazing idea's have never seen the light of day because Valve employee's got bored working on them.
