AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

About four months ago I was elected to the 'Council of Stellar Management ' in the Eve Online MMORPG. In the summer this meant a four-day trip to Iceland to meet with the folks at CCP who develop the product.

Today is time for the second meeting (the New York Times wrote about the first one ), but this time it is taking place via an in-game chat room with 'our side' sitting at keyboard in their homes in the UK, Denmark, The Netherlands, Eastern Europe and Australia. At some point the USA will be added to that. On the CCP management side they are also mostly at home, but in Reykjavik! And so far, so smoothly (but so slowly too!)

Of course, because we aren't face-to-face during the meeting I can run that on one machine while continuing to write and test new code on another... and drink coffee... and listen to music... ;-P

I probably want them to run away scared of what would happen if they stuck around, so maybe Trump?
@cmclymer : Okay, the aliens ask for only one representative to meet with them. Who do you want representing all of us and why?
