Hello Ken. Nice to meet you on Internet. 🙂
My name is Kwon, Young Soo and I am working for Tiger’s Claw, a web magazine covering news regarding pc games.
I would like to know if I want to interview with you & Roberta. Because, Many korean pc gamers want to know about you & Roberta’s recent conditions.
I don’t guarantee that you remember about Dong-Seo Game Channel in South Korea. Dong-Seo Game Channel imported games of Sierra On-line in the 90s and sold it in South-Korea.
The Adventure games(For example, Quest for Glory Series and King’s Quest Series, Space Quest Series, Laura Bow Series and etc)of Sierra On-Line caught great popularity in the South-Korea. When you retired with your wife at Sierra On-Line, many of korean gamers were sad. However, they are waiting you up to now.
As a your fan, I want to do interview with you. I will show your recent condition and opinion about Game Industry to korean gamers. 🙂
Please allow interview with you. If you decide interview with me, you can notice to me by using a e-mail(
) or using this website’s board. 🙂
I am looking forward to your kind and favorable reply.
Kwon, Young Su

(re: Hello Ken. Many korean pc gamers want to know about you & Roberta’s recent conditions.) If Ken agrees, I think all of the people on this site would love to read the interview as well!
Also, why doesn’t Roberta go on this website???

(re: Hello Ken. Many korean pc gamers want to know about you & Roberta’s recent conditions.) I don’t want to get overloaded with answering questions, but am always willing to answer any questions anyone sends to me.
With respect to Roberta: She isn’t very “computer-centric”. Most of her days are spent playing with her dogs, reading or working out. She only checks her email at most once per week. She accused me the other day of being hopelessly addicted to the internet, and spending WAY too much time at my computer. I suspect she is right… I’ve tried to get her to look at this site, but haven’t been successful thus far.
My current hope is to get her to take the site more seriously, and to have her help me with the “design”. The user interface could be a LOT better, but it’s tough for me to see where looking at things through my “programmers eyes”. Programmers are always notoriously bad at design. If you ever see this site looking one million percent better (and, actually easy to use), you’ll know I was able to get Roberta to see still and help me.

How old were you when you started Sierra? (and how old are you now, if one may ask. And with ‘you’ I refer both to you and Roberta…)

(re: Hello Ken. Many korean pc gamers want to know about you & Roberta’s recent conditions.) Sierra was started in 1979 … which would mean I was 25. Unfortunately, this makes me almost 50 now. Roberta is roughly the same age. That said, whereas I seem to have aged, time seems to have forgotten her.
