    Hahaha two best lines:
    'When we ask people what they have, they'll always say things like Educational Software for their children or ways to improve their office efficiency, when really they have video games and porn'

    also

    'Oh those are just made up requirements...'

    Great interview!

    It's amazing how many of these guys, including Gabe, are college dropouts, then end up in places like CEO of Microsoft and then heading one of the most successful games company in the world.

    But then i guess you could say that about a number of other successful individuals in other industries.

    This. Degrees mean nothing, and Gabe says so in the conference too (something like "just make a game and if you're talented you'll get noticed - more important than just about any other decision you could make")
