John Carmack Interview

As usual, GameSpot didn't forget to pack their camera for QuakeCon, and so they have now posted a video interview with John Carmack, id Software's lead programmer. The conversation is available in four segments in several streaming formats, totalling nearly 24 minutes, and John talks about graphical effects, realism in games, the new Doom game and the features it will require in 3D accelerator cards, his current programming challenges, the future of computer graphics, and lots more.

Carmack is actually quite good at public speaking, as far as I can tell. Sure, his voice isn't quite what I'd call "deep"... but he can speak fairly well on the spot. You also won't catch him saying "ummm" or "err", although he does "mmm" a lot.
#3, do better. He wasn't patting himself on the back at all as far as I could tell? He mentioned that some of the stuff he did was incredibly hard whilst most of it was fairly easy... Which is probably true for him.
