Braben on the Beeb

Simon Challands on spotted an article on the BBC, about the Breadbin on the BBC Micro. It's an interesting read to Braben's opinion on the machine, and computing today. You can read it here - [2]

Braben's impression of the UK government's attitude to the games industry

On a link from Frontier's website, I noticed that David Braben has strongly criticised the British government's treatment of the UK game industry. In Gamespot, he's quoted as saying, "The government has made it very clear that it doesn't give a damn about the games industry." When asked to expand on his point, Braben told GameSpot that, "As an industry we have largely slipped between the cracks until now as far as government is concerned. Certainly as an industry, we have a low profile within government; there is a lack of appreciation of the size and revenue generated by our industry, and a similar lack of awareness of the issues we face."
