"drinking from the firehose" is pretty common vernacular at places like MS and Intel. usually used to refer to the information overload that new employees get during their first weeks.


It is intriguing to see EA -- a large company that has some interest in seeing game consoles stay closed systems -- is embracing user-created content in games.

Its coming very, very slowly.

Me too games, and carbon copy sequels...
