Shut Up Notch!
Tuesday, September 01, 2015
- Markus Persson (“Notch”) sold Mojang, the company that made Minecraft, to Microsoft for $2.5 billion last year. Now he's been tweeting about how hard life is as a billionaire. I say, shut the $%#& up, and I suspect I'm not alone.Markus, I have about 25 projects and ideas I would like to develop, but I can't. Do you know why? Because I'm spending every waking minute trying to simply provide for my family, and maybe splurge on a vacation or something once in a while. I don't want a billion dollars, but I sure would like enough to hire a couple developers who can do the stuff my brain isn't capable of. I don't even need a million dollars, but I'd like enough money to be able to cover my bills for a year so I could spend that year building one or two of the projects I think could be awesome.Just thinking about this has gotten me depressed. Thanks a lot.
