    Are there any recent Tarn "Dwarf Fortress" Adams interviews?

    There have been precious little interviews or articles about DF, but that's understandable. I'm just wondering if there have been any recent interviews with him by chance? I mean, he does communicate over on the bay12 forums, both about the game development as well as the donations that keep him alive and fed, but I think it would be great to have an interview with him and find out how much has changed since the many years ago when someone had interviewed him.

    Found this video from the end of last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9ZwVuGB_PI

    Tarn was also invited to the Eve fanfest this year, can see his talk here at 5:21:30: http://www.twitch.tv/ccp/b/396300023
    I also remember seeing a video interview with Tarn and Zach conducted while they were there, but haven't been able to find it again.

    Haven't watched either of those videos so I'm not sure if they're any good. Then there's this article from their local newspaper: http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2013/a...s-make-losing/

    oh man tarn seems to be getting fatter and balder. oth in those video interviews he seems pretty sociable, i remember people describing him as borderline aspergers in the early days.

    When I read the New York Times piece from a few years ago, I discovered that I've driven through his home town a zillion times as I have friends who live near Silverdale. Western Washington represent!

    There's also the occasional podcast on the Bay12 site (most recent one from May), DF Talk, where Tarn and Zach talk about current progress and answer questions.
