This brings up an interesting question for me, one that I have
attacked from different angles but have yet to understand.
Why aren't more of the business executives in the industry more
knowledgeable, passionate, or otherwise have a better understanding
of games and gaming in general? Is it that hard to find someone
with a business background who likes games?
Perhaps a related question: With how incestuous the games industry
is, is it any wonder that the same mistakes are continually made
with respect to some of the practices mentioned earlier in the
