Meretzky on Infocom
In Steve Meretzky’s interview with Technology Review, he talks about how he got started at the company, the z-machine, how technologically advanced Infocom’s software was, and how important it was that games there were individual efforts.

I fully agree with this: «One thing that helped was [that] a game really was one person’s effort. It was much easier for one individual to put their stamp of vision and direction onto a game. Since the cost of developing a game was so much less, companies could really afford to be more experimental.»
By the way, what does SM ’79 (or ’98 or ’04) stand for?

SM stands for Master of Science (in Latin).
