Who runs this thing?
Brent runs this thing.
Brent lives in Minneapolis, MN and is a long time MMORPG player, armchair designer, and former programmer. Brent co-founded a game company at age 19, played and worked on MUDS until the wee-hours throughout college, tried to start up another game company at age 22, found EverQuest at age 26, and became involved in the design of a MMO at age 29.
Meanwhile, a career in the IT business grew up in the cracks in the sidewalk, threatening to suck all the fun out of computers. In a desperate attempt to preserve his gamer-self, Brent started VirginWorlds in October 2005 as a blog discussing new MMO titles.
VirginWorlds began as a simple blog about the virtual worlds we're exploring, but soon after the launch of the site, Brent bought an iPod and discovered the world of podcasting. After 6 months of listening to other gaming podcasts the VirginWorlds MMORPG news podcast was started. Somewhere along the line, a few thousand people decided that it was a pretty decent show and Brent was encouraged to step it up a little by making some contacts in the industry. Game conferences, interviews, and a host of new podcasting friends appeared on the scene. The original plan of 'just a blog' has been far surpassed, but the resulting MMORPG community is among the best.
So far so good.
