Post news RSS Notch has left the building

I'm leaving on a two week vacation tonight, to celebrate my mother turning 60. While I will be bringing a laptop and there will be internet, I will try to not think about work as much as possible while I'm gone.

I'm leaving on a two week vacation tonight, to celebrate my mother turning 60. While I will be bringing a laptop and there will be internet, I will try to not think about work as much as possible while I'm gone.

To keep up with Minecraft development, you can check out our page on Facebook, or follow the following people on twitter:

Carl Manneh (ceo!)
Daniel Kaplan (bizdev!)
Jakob Porser (code!)
Jens Bergensten (code!)
Junkboy (art!)
Markus Persson (code!)
Tobias Mollstam (code!)

When I get back, I'll finish up the new launcher, then my goal is to get some early sketch of the Modding API out before GDC.

It doesn't matter.

He still has the responsibility of running Mojang, he can't go ****ing around on holidays all the time just because he has the money for it.

It isn't like he is doing much anyway, look at his past updates for example.
He'd add on average 4 things, and break 3. Of those 3 he would fix 2 and leave 1 and maybe fix it 3 months later. That is pretty ****** developing if you ask me.

I say he gives the money to the rest of the team so they can go on holidays while he sits back at the office and gets his **** together.

Or maybe he can let Jeb be the CEO.
