    Greece finaly greenlit, will be on Steam soon

    I've been watching Yanis Varoufakis with interest for the last few years, he being the presumed next Greek finance minster with Syriza but who has also worked extensively with Valve, analysing Steams economy and the organisational structure of Valve itself. Interesting times. He's a marxist economist, all his writing is interesting but I'd recommend to you good people his older blog writings when he worked with Valve and his more recent personal blog entries.

    Varoufakis as Greece Finance minister is literally killing 2 birds in 1 stone.
    Greece saves Europe from itself, and Valve might as well have to release new games to stay afloat.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Flickr, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    Greece is super screwed. You don't invite corrupt governance to share your currency, the value of the euro is going to bomb hard.... *shudders* now I feel like Squirrel.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    Quoted from an Irish friend "At last, a finance minster working for us"

    We'll see how long the honeymoon period lasts, and how much the coalition will affect things but it's still interesting. I'd love to ask him how working with Valve influences his wider economic thinking.

    "As the next finance minister, I can assure you that I shall not begin by going to Europe looking for a deal that is good for the Greek tax-payer, and bad for the Irish, the Slovak, the German, the French, the Italian taxpayer. We shall be thinking as Europeans. We will put above everything else the interests of the average European. These interests are not being served by the current arrangement."
