The Art of Quake 2, by Paul Steed

As in nearly all aspects of the company, the art department at id Software runs on pure synergy. That is, no real distinct lines of responsibility exist among the three artists because they work together so well as a team. The strength of the three-man art department at id comes from experience, hard work, and talent. Adrian Carmack, Kevin Cloud, and Paul Steed created the art for QUAKE 2 (and the upcoming mission pack), and this article reveals how it all came together.

Nice guy is in a bloody business, by Colin Covert

"It's always the quiet ones. Tim Willits is a nice, bright, clean-cut 20-year-old. He lives in his parents' St. Paul home and cleans his room when Mom tells him to. He's a University of Minnesota senior, with a double major in business and computer science, and an officer in the ROTC. He has a part-time job at the University Relations News Office, where he's so well regarded that he has the honor of wearing the Goldy Gopher costume and serving as the school's representative at nonsports functions."

Well, #quakecon seemed to be a success. Several people were impressed with the turnout including the id boys. I will have #quakecon pics in a few days and I'll have room to post them since I now have more web page space. Like a little good web page maintainer I took a fair amount of notes. I attended Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon.
