Ik denk dat iedereen Simprograms wel kent en de webmaster Jud. De Franse website Rabiere and Co heeft Jud geïnterviewd en er is nu een Engelse vertaling van. Het is een erg leuk interview over Jud zelf, de internationale De Sims community, EA en The Sims Team en nog veel meer.
Without divulging all your secrets, what are your main sources of news? Are some more reliable than others? Do you have a mole (or several) at EA, feeding you the best exclusive info?
My main source of news used to be RSS feeds, but I have found that Twitter has been a great replacement. The Sims Community is pretty huge on Twitter and we all share news content together – hence why you see many references to other sites in the posts. As for people inside EA, well, I do have a number of EA contacts, but I don’t dare bother them or use their info for newsposts unless I’m granted permission. While some may view them as a source for news, I value their friendship instead and rather just talk with them.
Main thing people have to remember about EA employees – while they have a blast working on the games, keep in mind it’s still a job and not many of them want to talk about it 100% of the time. They are also regular people and like to game and do other things. This is pretty much why you don’t see the site (Simprograms) sending in game questions or setting up interviews – I’d rather much not bother them about their job.
