Well, it’s been a good run I guess.

I played Minecraft a little bit right after it was released. It’s quite a game, isn’t it? There’s really nothing I can say about the game itself that hasn’t already been said a thousand times.

I don’t enjoy playing Minecraft as much as everyone else seems to, but I’m truly sorry to see it fall into the hands of a company that will probably move to take it away from the vibrant community of modders and server admins to squeeze more money out of kids who would rather buy skins than paint their own texture pack.

I guess it mostly seems like another way to move us users away from production and towards consumption, a way to reduce our involvement with the things we love as anything other than wallets shaped like people.

Would it be cynical to ask if this is the intention?
