(re: re: Quick Opinion Poll) Here’s some ancient Sierra trivia:
The name wizardandprincess.com comes from one of the very first games Roberta and I did – The Wizard and The Princess.
When Steve Levy wrote his book Hackers, much of which is about Roberta, I and Sierra, he named the chapter where he introduces Roberta and I “The Wizard and The Princess”. I can’t speak for Steve, but my assumption at the time was that he was referring to my programming skills (I was a techno-geek), and Roberta’s ability to write fantasy stories.
For a while, the name stuck. Roberta and I had custom license plates (mine with Wizard, and hers with Princess).
I’m not endorsing this as the name for the website – I still haven’t decided which name I like best. Maybe sierrafan.com, mostly because it’s the shortest.
Currently, my plan is to point all of the names at this website, and let people call it whatever they want…
PS Roberta said her preference was sierrafans.com (she said I should add an ‘s’ to fan
