Matt Chat 98: Interview with Scott Miller, Pt. 1

Matt Barton's picture

This week's episode contains the first segment of my interview with Scott Miller, founder of Apogee, 3D Realms, and The Radar Group. He's also a marketing genius who made a fortune from shareware, and recruited talent like Romero and Carmack among others. In short, you can't miss these if you're serious about videogame history.

Sorry about the SD in this video. Vegas crashed twice at 96% on the HD version, and I just didn't have the patience to try for a third time. I actually don't see much difference (do you?), so I might just stick to SD for these interviews since it's so much faster to render.

In regards to HD on youtube:

In regards to HD on youtube: I usually don't even watch HD options unless it's a video that demands spectacle. The Matt Chats, and a lot of other videos I watch online, appeal to a different part of my brain and I'm not very concerned with how sharp the image is. I'm actually most concerned with it buffering as fast as possible and being of a high enough quality where I can see and hear things clearly.

Looking forward to the next part of the interview. I grew up on Apogee shareware--even Wacky Wheels!
