Inspired by Music and [computer]Games

Just returning form a weekend in Uppsala [another Swedish city dominated by students]. In the last year I’ve noticed that the typical “get-together and drink beer with old friends” more often than not now includes playing Rockband or Guitar Hero. Reading Jeff Howes great article in Wired about Guitar Hero and the music industry got me into thinking about the old days of Quest for Fame back in 1996: me and some friends enjoyed the game so much and were so inspired that we started our own rock band. I swapped my trombone lessons for guitar lessons, Foppa bought a bass and we started rehearsing every weekend at Tobias place (where the drums were). We never made it big, but we had a lot of fun.
I guess it worked the same way for me and computers, starting out with easy but thrilling games like Gods and Duke Nukem 3D
And the same thing happend, the desire not just to play and use but to build and create. Inspiration and creativity is important, maybe more important than business thinking
