Reading the boards today I came across a thread about one of the co-founders of deviantArt literally being kicked out of his position under what looks to be shady circumstance by people he probably once considered to be friends. Read more here. Personally I'm no good at art so only browse deviantArt but I've experienced similar politicking whilst working for Gamespy and whilst I was paid at the time it's not even in the same league as this. Will watch with interest.
Other than that it's supposed to be a bit more summery today and one of my friends is leaving Dundee to start work at Rare. He'll be staying in Burton-upon-Trent with his girlfriend. The home of lots of beer. Might be worth a visit.
