Game Programmers

My brother is an accountant in Silicon Valley, and this email from him nearly made me fountain Diet Dr. Pepper:

So I've serviced several of the players in Silicon Valley, from semi-conductors to networking to software. Along the way there have most certainly been some interesting characters, but none as interesting as today when I arrived at a well known gaming software company.

Gaming programmers take the cake, from thug looking kids to your classic unkempt, pale pony-tailed man that you envision casting "intimidating shout" in a battle playing World of Warcraft. I wanted to cry out "Leeeeeeeerrooooooooy Jeeeenkiiiiiiiiiiiiins" just walking into this place.
