Half-Life 3 Trolling?

A photo posted on Twitter by Uber Entertainment's Chandana Ekanayake shows a t-shirt with a Half-Life 3 logo, saying: "All I'm saying is I saw this at a local game developer event worn by a Valve employee." Whether this is significant, or just trolling is not clear yet. The two hash tags he uses for this are #HalfLife3 and #ValveTrolling. Thanks Computer and Video Games.

Even Gabe isn't going to pay people to sit around and do nothing day in and day out, or do things that don't amount to anything except wasting time and money.

But that's the whole thing. He hires people that aren't likely to do that. They screen (apparently pretty effectively) for people that ARE self-motivated and will get things done without management having to threaten to fire them every other week.

Not everyone in the entire world is a lazy asshole who wouldn't do anything if given the choice. There are some who just enjoy what they do, and so they work because their work is what they like doing.

While it's certainly very unusual, I'm not sure why everyone keeps trying to convince everyone else that Gabe MUST be bullshitting.

On a planet of 7 billion people, there can't be a collection of a few hundred that can just self-motivate and get shit done WITHOUT some dipshit manager having to "guide" them all the time?

I'm in a job right now where we're 99% self-managed, and the fact that I DON'T get hassled by some cock-gobbler who doesn't know shit is enough to keep me motivated to get all the work done.
