Leaked Valve Employee Handbook?

PC Gamer reproduces what's purported to be a handbook for new employees at Valve, the privately held video game developer that created Half-Life half a lifetime ago. This appears to be bona fide, and offers additional details and insights on the company's unusual hierarchy and way of conducting business.

Reading how Valve does things make me finally understand why "Valve Time" exists. I'm not knocking them though for it.

What I don't understand is why its a surprise? Why is it "finally understand?" Its exactly the stuff they've been saying for years.

I quote them from interviews, and people deny that it can be possible or insist that I must be taking it out of context, yet its right there in the employee handbook.

I've said for a while now that this organizational structure explains a lot of stuff about valve, especially puzzling stuff.
It's a surprise to me because I don't read any Valve interviews really. So I'm ignorant about what they say their work culture is like.
