Manager In A Strange Land: The Czar Chart (12 Mar 2004)
Fickle employees are a part of business. Loyalty is a forgotten concept--these days, if you have talent, you ask, "What can the company do for me?" first, and "What can I do for the company?" second. And there's nothing wrong with that--since the typical company's goal is to give their employees as little as possible, and get out of them as much as possible, it's not surprising that people have this attitude. If they didn't have this attitude, they'd be taken advantage of.
When it comes to videogames, we are mostly volunteers. We have talents that could probably earn us more money if we worked in other fields. Some of us are here because we've heard anecdotes about a few people who got rich, but most of us are here because we want to make good games.
